a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 
on Sunday, when classes are in session. 

Small group information sessions about the campus are available at the 
Campus Visitor's Center in Levis Faculty Center, 919 West Illinois 
Street. Visitors are welcome between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday

In compliance with the reporting requirements of the federal Student 
Right to Know Act, the 1 993 completion or graduation rate for students 
who entered the University of Illinois a t Urbana-Champaign in 1 987 on 
a full-time basis was 80 percent. 

The commitment of the University to the most fundamental principles 
of academic freedom, equality of opportunity, and human dignity 
requires that decisions involving students and employees be based on 
individual merit and be free from invidious discrimination in all its 
forms. 

It is the policy of the University of Illinois not to engage in discrimi- 
nation or harassment against any person because of race, color, reli- 
gion, sex, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, disability, 
sexual orientation, unfavorable discharge from the military, or status 
as a disabled veteran or a veteran of the Vietnam era and to comply with 
all federal and state nondiscrimination, equal opportunity and affir- 
mative action laws, orders, and regulations. This nondiscrimination 
policy applies to admissions, employment, access to and treatment in 
each University program and activity. 

Among the forms of invidious discrimination prohibited by Uni- 
versity policy but not law is sexual orientation. Complaints of invidi- 
ous discrimination based solely upon policy are to be resolved within 
existing University procedures. As of the printing of this catalog, all 
Military Science and Air Force Aerospace Studies leadership labora- 
tory courses are out of compliance with the University's policy of 
nondiscrimination based on sexual orientation. 

For additional information on the equal opportunity and affirma- 
tive action policies of the University, please contact on the Urbana- 
Champaign campus: Larine Cowan, interim director of affirmative 
action (and Title IX, ADA, and 504 Coordinator), 202 Swanlund Ad- 
ministration Building, MC-304, 601 East John Street, Champaign, IL

General Introduction 



The University ol lllinoi-~.it I rbana-Champaign was founded in L867 
as a state-supported, land-grant institution with a threefold mission of 
teaching, research and public service. During its history, the Univer- 
sity has earned a reputation as an institution ot international stature. 
It is recognized tor the high quality of its academic programs and the 
outstanding facilities and resources it makes available to students and 
faculty Scholars and educators rank it among a select group of the 
world s great universities. 

The Campus 

Located in the adjoining cities of Champaign and Urbana (combined 
population 100,000), approximately 140 miles south of Chicago, the 
University and its surrounding communities offer a cultural and 
recreational environment ideally suited to the work of a major re- 
search institution. 

Close proximity by air, rail, bus, or car to Chicago and ready access 
to major cities on both coasts through daily flights to and from the 
University's Willard Airport make it possible to maintain the close 
contact with major cultural centers that is essential to the intellectual 
life of an international university. 

The University is a residential campus of classrooms, laboratories, 
libraries, residence halls, and recreational and cultural facilities with 
193 major buildings on the central campus of 785 acres. Nearby are the 
University's 1,650-acre Willard Airport; Robert Allerton Park, the 
campus's 1,768-acre nature and conference center; and 3,600 acres of 
agricultural land. An additional 3,700 acres of farmland elsewhere in 
Illinois are used by the College of Agriculture as experimental fields. 

Nearly every facility on campus is accessible to the physically 
disabled, and the University's programs and services for the disabled 
have served as models worldwide. 

Co//ege$ and Schools 

Eight undergraduate colleges and one school offer 150 programs of 
study leading to baccalaureate degrees. They are the Colleges of 
Agriculture, Applied Life Studies, Commerce and Business Adminis- 
tration, Communications, Education, Engineering, Fine and Applied

Student Body 

There are approximately 36,400 students and 9,140 faculty and staff 
members in the University community. About 26,000 undergraduates 
(57 percent male, 43 percent female), typically from every state in the 
union and about 100 foreign countries, enroll each year; 93 percent of 
the undergraduates are Illinois residents. Minority students make up 
about 13 percent of the total enrollment. 

Undergraduate education is strongly emphasized, and admis- 
sions are very competitive. The median ACT composite score of 
entering freshmen is 27, and more than 25 percent of these students 
ranked in the top 3 percent of their high school classes. The majority 
of transfer students enter the University with 4.0 grade- point averages 
(A = 5.0). 

Approximately 100 freshmen are selected annually to join the 
Campus Honors Program as Chancellor's Scholars. The program 
fosters close, collaborative relationships between top students and 
distinguished faculty members through special honors sections, fac- 
ulty mentors, and summer research opportunities. 

Most undergraduate students receive baccalaureate degrees after 
four years, and many go on to advanced study in the humanities, the 
sciences, the social sciences, and various professional fields. Typi- 
cally, 80 percent of the graduates who apply to law school are 
accepted; 65 percent are accepted to medical school. 



Graduate Studies 



Courses and Class Size 



The Graduate College is the academic and administrative unit that has 
jurisdiction over all programs leading to advanced degrees. The 
Graduate College develops and safeguards standards of graduate 
work and promotes and assists research by faculty members and 
graduate students in all fields. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign enrolls approxi- 
mately 9,000 graduate students and offers advanced degrees in more 
than 100 fields of study. In addition to the M.A. or M.S. and Ph.D. 
degrees offered in many disciplines, a number of departments offer 
work leading to other graduate degrees. Among these are master's 
and doctoral degrees in professional and performing arts fields and 
various master's degrees in teaching. 

Descriptions of these degrees are given in the appropriate depart- 
mental sections of the Graduate Programs section. More detailed 
descriptions of graduate programs and the requirements for the 
degrees may be obtained from the individual departments. 



Academic Calendar 



The campus has an academic calendar of two sixteen-week semesters 
and a twelve-week summer session. The fall semester begins in late 
August and ends in mid-December; the spring semester begins in 
early January and ends in mid-May. The summer session, which 
consists of one four-week term and one eight-week term, extends from 
mid-May to early August. Classes are taught during the hours of 8:00 
a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; a few evening classes are conducted, primarily for 
graduate students.

The University attracts more than $170 million each year in pri- 
vate, state, and federal grants and contract appropriations. In recent 
years, a significant amount of this support has been directed toward 
the creation and development of major centers for advanced research 
and study, including more than $100 million for the National Center 
for Supercomputing Applications. This center has established the 
University as a recognized world leader in the fields of supercomputing 
architecture, design, and applications. In 1985, the University was the 
recipient of the largest single gift ever made by an individual to a 
public university — $40 million from University alumnus Arnold 0.

are from 8 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 
except on holidays. 

FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES 

Fifty-seven fraternities and twenty-seven sororities, representing 
approximately 6,300 members at the Urbana-Champaign campus, 
comprise the Greek community. Fifty fraternities and twenty-two 
sororities have living accomodations for most of their members, with 
an average occupancy of fifty. The opportunity for membership in a 
fraternity or sorority exists whether the student lives in the chapter 
house or not, however, many chapters have live-in requirements. 
Most students move into their chapter house their second year of 
membership. Costs for room and board vary from chapter to chapter, 
however they are not significantly greater than those in other housing 
facilities. 

Membership in fraternities and sororities is by invitation. Invita- 
tions or bids are issued after formal and/or informal recruitment 
functions. The Greek community is very diverse in the type and size 
of chapters available and, because of this diversity, there are varia- 
tions in how to join. Two opportunities for joining are available to 
women: Panhellenic Formal Sorority Rush, which is held at the 
beginning of the fall semester; and rush events and informationals that 
individual chapters host. For men interested in joining a fraternity, the 
Interfraternity Council offers a concentrated period of rush at the 
beginning of each semester, as well as the opportunity of joining at any 
point in the semester. Individuals interested in Black Greek Council 
chapters need to attend a chapter's informational session to get 



involved in the intake process. For more information, please contact 
the Black Greek Council at 244-6493, the Interfraternity Council at 333- 
3308, or the Panhellenic Council at 333-3742. 

HOUSING FOR STUDENT FAMILIES 

There are approximately 1,000 University-owned apartments, some 
of which are available to undergraduate student families. There is also 
a variety of privately owned housing facilities in the community. An 
application for University-owned apartments can be obtained by 
writing to the Family Housing Office, University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign, 1841 Orchard Place, Urbana, IL 61801. 

A listing of privately owned furnished and unfurnished apart- 
ments with rental rates and other information is available for review 
in the Certified Housing/Housing Information Office, 2 Turner Stu- 
dent Services Building. 

Generally, November 1 to March 1, and June 1 to October 1 are 
considered the most desirable times to visit the campus to arrange for 
apartment accommodations for the first and second semesters, 
respectively. 

GRADUATE STUDENT HOUSING 

The University of Illinois maintains housing for single graduate 
students in two residence halls within walking distance of the cam- 
pus. Each study room is furnished and connects with a complete bath 
shared with the residents of one or two other rooms. Single and double 
rooms are available. Cooking is not allowed in student rooms, but a 
contract for food service in nearby dining rooms can be arranged. 
Residence halls have lounge facilities, laundry rooms, and vending 
machines. 

Students must be admitted before they can sign a housing contract. 
Priority in assignment is determined by the date that the completed 
contract is received. Students should make housing arrangements 
well before the term begins. For information, write to the Residence 
Hall Contracts Office, 200 Clark Hall, 1203 South Fourth Street, 
Champaign, IL 61820. 

Married students and students with families can choose from one- 
bedroom (furnished) or two-bedroom (furnished or unfurnished) 
apartments. All units include a stove and a refrigerator. Convenient 
laundry facilities are available. For information, write to the Family 
Housing Office, 1841 Orchard Place, Urbana, IL 61801. 

The Housing Information Office also maintains a current listing of 
privately owned apartments and rooms available in the community. 
Students seeking private housing are urged to visit the campus as 
early as possible, because all arrangements for this type of accommo- 
dation should be made in person. Anyone unfamiliar with standard 
leasing practices should ask a housing consultant for assistance. The 
Housing Information Office is located at 2 Turner Student Services 
Building, 610 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820; (217) 333-1420. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the Univer- 
sity residence halls are committed to a policy of nondiscrimination 
with respect to race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, 
marital status, sexual orientation, age, handicap, unfavorable dis- 
charge from the military, or status as a disabled veteran or veteran of 
the Vietnam era. 

UNIVERSITY POLICY ON NONDISCRIMINATION IN HOUSING 

In the rental of housing that is University-owned or University- 
certified, or of uncertified housing (apartments, uninspected rooming 
houses, etc.) that is listed with Certified Housing/Housing Informa- 
tion Office, the University of Illinois policy on nondiscrimination shall 
be followed. The University makes every effort to ensure that accepted 
listings include only those owners or managers who comply fully with 
its nondiscriminatory housing policy. 

If anyone has any reason to believe that an owner or manager of 
certified housing or any other listed housing has illegally discrimi- 
nated against an individual, this information should be communi- 
cated directly to the Housing Discrimination Committee in care of 2 
Turner Student Services Building, 610East John Street, Champaign, IL 
61820.

Programs of Study 



stimulating environment for graduate study and research. 

The following pages describe some of the facilities and resources 
available to graduate students and faculty in ten broad fields of 
graduate study — agriculture, applied life studies, commerce and 
business administration, communications, education, engineering, 
fine and applied arts, law, liberal arts and sciences, and veterinary 
medicine. The instructional and research programs of individual 
departments and of interdisciplinary and other graduate units are 
described in the Programs of Study section of this catalog. 

UNIVERSITY LIBRARY 

The University Library's resources for advanced study and research 
are exceptional. It is the third largest academic collection in the nation, 
housing more than 8.2 million volumes. Its mission is to acquire, 
preserve, and provide access to the collected knowledge of the world. 

The library system includes the Undergraduate Library and more 
than thirty-eight departmental libraries. Among the most important 
rare and special items are world-famous rare book and manuscript 
collections dealing with Milton, Shakespeare, Proust, H.G. Wells, Carl 
Sandburg, the international Olympic movement, and the history of 
science. A pioneer in library automation, the library now has one of the 
largest online public-access catalogs, serving a network of more than 
800 public, private, and academic libraries in Illinois. It is also a leader 
in interlibrary loan within Illinois, due to a strongly developed, 
unique statewide resource-sharing network. 

The Grainger Engineering Library Information Center, which 
opened to the public in March 1994, is the largest engineering library 
in the country. It houses the library's collection of more than 225,000 
volumes and 3,400 serials covering the fields of aeronautical and 
astronautical engineering, civil engineering, computer science, gen- 
eral engineering, materials science, mechanical and industrial engi- 
neering, nuclear engineering, and theoretical and applied mechanics. 

The University Library is the site of the Mortenson Center for 
International Library Programs, which brings librarians and those 
engaged in library-related materials from around the world to learn 
about the library and its activities, and to share knowledge and 
experience with the library staff. The goal is to strengthen ties among 
international libraries as a means to promote freer access to informa- 
tion worldwide. 

COMPUTING AND COMMUNICATIONS SERVICES 
OFFICE 

The Computing and Communications Services Office (CCSO) on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus provides computer support for instruc- 
tional and research programs as well as for communications services 
throughout the University. CCSO primarily supports the UNIX oper- 
ating system running on IBM, CONVEX, and Sequent machines. 
These systems are interconnected and serve a network of remote 
facilities, open-access campus computer sites, networked worksta- 
tions, graphics equipment, and office desktop systems, as well as dial- 
up access from office and residential locations. CCSO provides ongo- 
ing development and support of a campuswide network, called 
UlUCnet, based on optical fiber. Yearly campus funding continues the 
extension of UlUCnet to all major buildings and the construction of 
local area networks (LANs) within buildings. 

Members of more than 100 University departments use CCSO 
facilities. The graduate curricula are heavily dependent on computing 
support, and a large percentage of thesis research requires some 
computer use. Approximately two-thirds of the use is related to 
graduate pri 'grams and resean h, Areas of strength include computer 
music, networked information management, and computer art/de- 
sign, in addition to computer use in more quantitative disciplines. 

Administration of computing facilities is guided by the principle 

that users should have easy access to computer support. Access to 

CCSO's systems is provided through formal allocations for courses 

u d through free aci ounts for students, faculty, and staff

the Illini Union, Illini Hall, the Digital Computer Lab, Everitt Lab, 
English Building, Lincoln Hall, Oregon Street Computer site, Psychol- 
ogy Building, CRH Snack Bar, and Commerce West. CCSO depart- 
mental sites are located in Turner Hall, Noyes Lab, the Psychology 
Building, and the Undergraduate Library. 

The University owns a vast array of computer resources, including 
microcomputers, workstations, minicomputers, mainframes, and 
supercomputers. This equipment is networked by UlUCnet and de- 
partmental LANs, which deliver basic services — electronic mail, file 
transfer, access to remote networks, access to the library card catalog, 
a timely weather report, the online student/staff directory, a campus 
information server, and several commercial databases. Hardware 
components based on national standards are used, providing a firm 
basis from which to build a ubiquitous campus network. 

CCSO offers a full complement of computer-related user services 
through a Resource Center located in the Digital Computer Labora- 
tory, which also houses CCSO offices and mainframe operations. User 
services include consulting on mainframe systems, microcomputers, 
software packages, hardware, e-mail, and other uses of the campus 
network. Consulting is offered on both a walk-in and a phone-in basis. 
Computer training courses and seminars are taught by the staff. The 
Resource Center also provides demonstration systems on which users 
may try various software packages or may copy free public-domain 
software. 

CCSO has developed several outreach projects to attempt to 
deliver quality computing services to all sections of the campus 
community. The Office of Computing and Communications for the 
Social Sciences (OCCSS), located in Lincoln Hall, is a joint effort 
between CCSO and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences to provide 
support for teaching and research in the social sciences. Although 
focusing on the social sciences, this facility and its services are open to 
the general campus community. OCCSS provides statistical consult- 
ing, access to various data archives, and specialized assistance for 
members of the social sciences or humanities fields. 

CCSO operates a Network Operations Center (NOC) to monitor 
and support the campus network. A Network Design Office (NDO) 
coordinates the connection of buildings to UlUCnet and assists the 
departments with LAN designs. Recognizing the distributed nature 
of campus computing, CCSO offers a Computer Consultant Support 
Program (CCSP) to provide training and supportive contracts for the 
human network of departmental computer consultants. 

The long tradition of employing computing technology in research 
and teaching at Illinois has led to the strength of computing resources 
both within CCSO and across the campus. 

CIC TRAVELING SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of 
the Big Ten universities and the University of Chicago, established the 
Traveling Scholar Program as part of its effort to increase cooperative 
use of its member institutions' resources. The program enables doc- 
toral-level students to attend other CIC institutions in order to take 
advantage of special course offerings, laboratory facilities, or library 
collections. Visits of traveling scholars are limited to two semesters or 
three quarters. Traveling scholars register and pay regular fees at their 
home universities. Credit earned while in this program is automati- 
cally accepted by the home university. 

Application forms are available from the Graduate College, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 202 Coble Hall, 801 South 
Wright Street, Champaign, IL 61820. 

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS AND STUDIES

BECKMAN INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED SCIENCE AND 
TECHNOLOGY 

The Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology is the 
largest and most ambitious university-based multidisciplinary re- 
search facility in the United States It was founded on the promise that 
reducing the barriers between traditional scientific and technological 
disciplines can yield research advances that more conventional ap- 
proaches cannot. 

The building was made possible by a $40 million gift — at the time, 
the largest ever presented to a public university — from UIUC alum- 
nus Arnold O. Beckman, founder of Beckman Instruments, Inc., and 
his wife, Mabel M. Beckman. This gift was supplemented by $10 
million from the state of Illinois, which also provided the ongoing 
operating support for the facility. The research programs in the 
building are supported mainly by external funding from the federal 
government and from corporations and foundations. 

The research conducted within the Beckman Institute is organized 
along two parallel lines examining living and nonliving systems of 
increasing complexity. One focus incorporates research in the areas of 
biology, behavior, and cognition. The other concentrates on the physi- 
cal sciences, computation, and engineering. Research performed at 
the Beckman Institute focuses on three broadly defined main research 
themes: biological intelligence, human-computer interaction, and 
molecular and electronic nanostructures. The general goal of the 
biological intelligence research is to develop understanding of intelli- 
gent systems by studying the diverse ways in which neurally based 
systems become capable of intelligent behavior. Within this research 
theme, programs extend from biochemical-, molecular-, and cellular- 
level studies of how neurons work, through integrative and compu- 
tational neuroscience, to cognitive science, which seeks to understand 
how humans process sensory information and represent knowledge. 
The human-computer interaction research focuses on improving the 
ways a human operator interacts with a computer by studying not 
only the input-output techniques, but also the human factors. Within 
this research theme, programs range from artificial intelligence, robot- 
ics, computer vision, cognitive science, human perception and perfor- 
mance, to virtual reality environment experiments carried out in 
collaboration with the National Center for Supercomputing Applica- 
tions. The general goal of the molecular and electronic nanostructures 
research is to develop new approaches to electronic devices. Research 
programs range from computational electronics, scanning tunnel 
microscopy including lithography and fabrication of semiconductor 
nanostructures, and photonics, to efforts to synthesize and character- 
ize new materials including self-organized syntheses of inorganic, 
organic, and biochemical systems. 

Twenty Beckman Institute research groups, composed of research- 
ers from nearly two dozen UIUC departments as far-ranging as 
psychology, computer science, and biochemistry are investigating 
these and other areas. The building, with its more than 200 offices, 
specialized state-of-the-art laboratories and other facilities, and meet- 
ing areas for conferences, workshops, and casual interaction, provides 
an ideal environment for fostering collaborative research. 

BIOTECHNOLOGY CENTER 

The Biotechnology Center, a special unit of the Graduate College, is an 
organization of more than 100 faculty members of the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus from more than a dozen departments that have active 
research programs spanning a broad range of biotechnology research 
areas. The center supports an expanding industrial-affiliates program 
that promotes interaction between the faculty and scientists in indus- 
trial research settings. 

The Biotechnology Center administers six centralized service fa- 
cilities: theGenetic Engineering Facility, the Immunological Resources 



Center, the Flow Cytometry Facility, the Fermentation Facility, the 
I ransgenic Animal Facility, and the Center for Electron Microscopy. 
fhe Genetic Fngineering Facility synthesizes peptides and DNA 
oligonucleotides and performs protein sequencing, DNA sequencing, 
and amino acid analysis for faculty members and for industrial 
affiliates. The Immunological Resource Center generates polyclonal 
and monoclonal antibody reagents and the Flow Cytometry Facility 
operates three state-of-the-art fluorescence-activated cell sorters. The 
flow cytometers are available to all faculty members and graduate 
students for use in conjunction with their research efforts. A full-time 
operator is available to run samples and to train staff members in the 
use of these sophisticated instruments. The Fermentation Facility is 
supervised by a trained chemical engineer who operates 20-, 30-, and 
200-liter fermenters for the growth of large quantities of microorgan- 
isms. The Transgenic Animal Facility, jointly supported with the 
College of Agriculture, is available to help faculty members test gene 
constructs in transgenic mice. The Center for Electron Microscopy 
provides access to microscopes and ancillary equipment for use by 
faculty or students who can demonstrate prior experience or who 
successfully complete a short course of instruction. Service work can 
also be performed by center staff. 

The Biotechnology Center supports interdisciplinary graduate 
courses and workshops in biotechnology and provides travel grants 
for graduate students and summer research fellowships for under- 
graduates depending on the availability of funds. 

PROGRAM FOR THE STUDY OF CULTURAL VALUES AND 
ETHICS 

The Program for the Study of Cultural Values and Ethics is an 
interdisciplinary unit for the advancement of inquiry in the humani- 
ties, social sciences, and arts. The program serves to help faculty 
members support research, develop courses, and conduct conferences 
in areas that relate to the evolution, understanding, and implementa- 
tion of cultural values and ethical systems. UIUC faculty members 
may apply to the institute and be appointed for terms of from one 
semester to three years for interdisciplinary activities relating to the 
study of cultural values and ethics. The program provides several 
research assistantships and fellowships to graduate students who 
wish to pursue research in these areas. Activities of the program also 
include seminars, short courses, and artistic projects. The program 
plans to publish lectures, books, articles, reports, and a journal. 

MICROELECTRONICS LABORATORY 

The Microelectronics Laboratory building is one of the nation's largest 
and most sophisticated university-based facilities for III-V compound 
semiconductor research. University of Illinois faculty and students 
are using the building's state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to 
conduct research that may ultimately solve many of the problems 
facing the next generation of telecommunications and information- 
processing technology. 

The 50,000 square foot building houses facilities and equipment 
for optoelectronic materials' growth, submicron device patterning 
and fabrication, high-speed optical and electrical measurements, and 
ultra-high-purity semiconductor characterization. Among the high- 
lights of this building are its sixteen class 1 00 and class 1 000 clean room 
laboratories for crystal growth and device processing and fabrication. 
Specific capabilities include molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), metal- 
organic chemical vapor (MOCVD), chemical beam epitaxy (CBE), 
electron and optical lithography, plasma-assisted deposition of ox- 
ides and nitrides, reactive ion etching, and plasma etching. 

The building also houses the Center for Compound Semiconduc- 
tor Microelectronics — one of twenty-one National Science Founda- 
tion Engineering Research Centers nationwide. The CCSM has three 
goals: develop the engineering science and technology base required 
to fabricate low-cost, high-performance optoelectronic integrated 
circuits and apply them in optical interconnect systems; educate 
engineers in this field; and transfer this technology to industry. Eight 
of the CCSM's nineteen research groups reside in the building. 

Funded by the state of Illinois, the $13.5 million building was the 
first university facility in the world to be built in accordance with the 
stringent H6 fire and safety codes applicable to semiconductor 
laboratories.

NATIONAL CENTER FOR SUPERCOMPUTING 
APPLICATIONS 

The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) was 
established in February 1985 with a National Science Foundation 
(NSF) grant, and opened to the national research community in 
January 1986. The Advanced Research Projects Agency, other federal 
agencies, corporate partners, the University of Illinois, and the state of 
Illinois supply additional funding. The center has provided high- 
performance computing and communications (HPCC) resources for 
over 7,500 users at more than 400 universities and corporations. 

NSF placed the new national centers at major research universities 
to provide fertile ground for the multidisciplinary exchanges needed 
to create new fields in computational science. The University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign founded an Interdisciplinary Research 
Center (IRC) within NCSA to focus this process. IRC, located in the 
Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, is a scien- 
tific program built around a comprehensive, integrated computa- 
tional network that facilitates frontier research and the sharing of 
knowledge across disciplines. The IRC supports a variety of intellec- 
tual programs involving national visitors; staff research scientists; 
UIUC adjunct faculty; postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate 
students; computer scientists; and computer professionals. 

NCSA does not directly fund research projects, but provides the 
environment in which they can be carried out effectively. The center 
is a training ground for graduate students working on IRC-affiliated 
projects. Training includes the use of supercomputers, workstations, 
and productivity software for research purposes. In addition, NCSA 
sponsors many educational activities, such as seminars and technol- 
ogy demonstrations, which are open to the entire University 
community. 

NCSA's plan for meeting the computational requirements of its 
users is constantly re-evaluated in response to advances in technology 
as well as changes in federal funding policy. NCSA is phasing out 
traditional vector processing platforms and moving to scalable, shared 
memory platforms constructed from microprocessors. Scalable com- 
puters are modular, upgradeable, and binary compatible from desk- 
top to supercomputer, making them a flexible alternative to tradi- 
tional architectures. NCSA is deploying new scalable machines from 
leading computer corporations. Allocations on the NCSA systems are 
awarded by peer review. Graduate students can gain access through 
their advisers or through a group that has been allocated time on a 
system. 

NCSA's visualization program, a major research and develop- 
ment effort at the center, adopts new technologies and develops new 
techniques to serve computational science. Virtual reality (VR), the 
latest step in visualization technology, surrounds the user with a 
synthetic environment that emulates reality. NCSA's VR Laboratory 
provides a resource where researchers can explore their data while 
experimenting with the latest equipment. The newest addition to 
NCSA's VR Laboratory is the CAVE, a collaborative project between 
NCSA and the University of Illinois at Chicago's Electronic Visualiza- 
tion Laboratory (EVL). In the CAVE, a virtual environment is dis- 
played on multiple walls of a room using rear-projection monitors. 

Software packages are supported at NCSA for most branches of 
science and engineering. In addition, the NCSA Software Develop- 
ment Group develops software tools for computational scientists and 
turns prototypes into products. Its highly successful communications 
package, NCSA Telnet, and its Internet browser, NCSA Mosiac™, are 
used worldwide. 

To learn more about the programs, services, and facilities at the 
center, please call (217) 244-0072.

CENTER FOR WRITING STUDIES 

The Center for Writing Studies (CWS) facilitates research and pro- 
motes graduate study in the areas of rhetoric, written composition, 
language, and literacy. For graduate students pursuing M.A. or Ph.D. 
degrees in participating departments, the center offers a program 
leading to a specialization in writing and literacy research. Participat- 
ing departments and programs include the Department of English, 
the Department of Speech Communication, the Division of English as 
an International Language, and the College of Education. Other 
campus units and programs with which faculty members are affili- 
ated are the Beckman Institute, the Center for Advanced Study, the 
Center for the Study of Reading, the Institute for Communications 
Research, the Program for the Study of Cultural Values and Ethics, 
and the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory. 

The work of the center is focused around three principal areas: the 
historical, the theoretical, and the empirical study of writing. Specific 
interests include research in computers and composition studies, 
methods of rhetorical and functional language analysis, cognitive 
processes in message production, the development of language and 
literacy theory and policy, and problems in technical and scientific 
writing. Graduate training in scholarship and research is accompa- 
nied by an equally thorough preparation for teaching. CWS is also 
home to Computers and Composition, a journal for teachers of writing, 
and the CCCC Bibliography of Composition and Rhetoric. 

Research and Instructional Resources 
within Disciplinary Colleges 

Although the GraduateCollege has oversight responsibility for gradu- 
ate programs and degrees as well as for a number of research and 
service facilities, each of ten disciplinary colleges at the UIUC campus 
serves as an educational and administrative group composed of 
departments and other units. These are the Colleges of Agriculture, 
Applied Life Studies, Commerce and Business Administration, Com- 
munications, Education, Engineering, Fine and Applied Arts, Law, 
Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine. Other disciplin- 
ary units outside the colleges include the Institute of Aviation, the 
Institute for Environmental Studies, the Institute of Labor and Indus- 
trial Relations, the Graduate School of Library and Information Sci- 
ence, and the School of Social Work. Graduate students are an integral 
part of the research activities conducted in all of these units. 

AGRICULTURE 

Within the College of Agriculture, the Agricultural Experiment Sta- 
tion coordinates thecollege's research program. Approximately 10,000 
acres of college-owned farmland in all parts of Illinois are used for 
research. Approximately 400 active projects in the Agricultural Ex- 
periment Station are being conducted on campus and at the fifteen 
research centers throughout the state. 

Because agricultural research often involves more than one field of 
study, much of it is conducted in cooperation with other colleges on 
the Urbana-Champaign campus, with the state surveys on campus 
(Geological, Natural History, and Water), with the U.S. Department of 
Agriculture, and with other agricultural colleges. Interdisciplinary 
research is encouraged in such special areas as crop and animal 
production and uses, environmental quality, pest management, the 
International Soybean Program (INTSOY), and food and nutrition. 

Illinois education, agriculture, and agribusiness are in the fore- 
front of world food production and development. In addition to 
course offerings with an international focus, research is conducted 
with the goal of assisting developing countries to expand their own 
food production and distribution. Faculty exchanges and cooperative 
research with foreign institutions and agencies of tcr opportunities for 
mutually beneficial programs. The Office oi International Agriculture 
is responsible for the broad supervision of the college's international 
activity. Some major international interests include soybeans, maize, 
animal agriculture, and nutrition. 



Research and Instructional Resources within Disciplinary Colleges 



APPLIED LIFE STUDIES 



COMMUNICATIONS 



In addition to departmental research facilities within the College of 
Applied 1 Lfe Studies, the Institute tor Research on Human Develop- 
ment serves as an interdisciplinary research unit concerned with 
health and human development. The institute's work is directed 
toward understanding and promoting optimum health, human de- 
velopment, and performance. The institute has an established na- 
tional reputation tor it-- u ork in gerontology, motivation, psychophar- 
macologv, performance assessment, and related areas. Its programs 
are characteristically undertaken in cooperation with other units such 
as the Division of Human Development and Family Studies, the 
Department of Community Health, and the Division of Rehabilitation 
Education. 

COMMERCE AND BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

Several activities within the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration supplement the research efforts of the departments. 
The Office for Information Management is financed jointly by college 
and University funds and corporate donations. The major goal of the 
office is to coordinate the development of computer applications in 
the course curriculum, to equip, maintain, and supervise computer 
laboratories used for general student projects that simulate special- 
ized business information system environments, and to provide a 
focal point for research-related information systems and their impact 
on management and its operations. The facilities and activities of the 
office permit the college to give students experience in state-of-the-art 
hardware and software in information systems. 

The Executive-in-Residence Program, Visiting Executives Pro- 
grams, and the Chief Financial Officer Lecture Series bring visiting 
business executives to the campus to present lectures and lead discus- 
sions with students and faculty on specific topics. The Bureau of 
Economic and Business Research provides and analyzes a variety of 
state and local economic data. The college has acquired several finan- 
cial data files such as the Center for Research on Stock Prices (CRSP) 
and the Standard and Poor's Compustat Tapes. There are also eco- 
nomic data tapes, including those of the Data Resources and Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund. The college is the depository for the Bureau of 
Economic Analysis tapes and diskettes. 

The international orientation of many programs is another impor- 
tant aspect of the college's overall teaching and research program. 
Distinguished faculty members with international academic back- 
grounds have developed a number of special courses with an interna- 
tional focus. The Office of the Director of International Programs in the 
college provides overall assistance in the international field. The 
Center for International Education and Research in Accounting in the 
Department of Accountancy coordinates the research programs of 
distinguished visiting scholars and publishes an international ac- 
counting journal. The college has been involved in several overseas 
programs. Special international programs offered include the Policy 
Economics Program for people from developing countries, the four- 
teen-month Master of Science in Business Administration for Interna- 
tional Managers, the Master of Science in International Accountancy 
with specializations in accounting and auditing, and the Master of 
Science in Finance with a specialization in International Finance 
(beginning June 1995). 

The Office of Real Estate Research, funded by the State of Illinois 
Real Estate Recovery Fund, undertakes and fosters research related to 
real estate in Illinois, communicates the results of such research to the 
real estate industry, and promotes the ongoing development of real 
estate education. 

Additional research offices have been created in the college: the 
Office of Public Utility Research; the Office of Accounting Research; 
the Office for Banking Research; the Program for Health Economics, 
Management, and Policy; the Center for International Business Edu- 
cation and Research; and the Office of Business Innovation and 
Entrepreneurship. Each of these offices promotes and coordinates 
research of faculty members in the college in these specific areas. In 
addition, each office provides a focal point for the college and its 
various constituencies to discuss and disseminate research results. 
These offices are funded by a combination of government and private- 
industry support. 

The Survey Research Laboratory is widely used by faculty and 
students interested in survey work. The Behavioral Laboratories are 
used to perform behavioral experiments, and the computer is a major 
tool for hypothesis testing and programming. 



In the College of Communications, the Institute of Communications 
Research, which administers the doctoral program in communica- 
tions and the B.S. in media studies, is one of the oldest and most 
distinguished interdisciplinary research centers in the United States. 
Through its graduates, the institute has spawned many similar pro- 
grams and institutes around the country. It conducts research and 
teaches in virtually all areas of communication but concentrates on 
cultural and media studies, the political economy of communications, 
information technology and policy, feminist and multicultural per- 
spectives, media and politics, sociology of news, media ethics, inter- 
national communications, the effects of mass communication, and the 
psychology and sociology of language. It provides students the op- 
portunity to study and to conduct research with a faculty that com- 
bines such disciplines as political science, sociology, psychology, 
history, and linguistics with the professional fields of telecommunica- 
tions, advertising, broadcasting, and journalism. Holdings in the 
Communications Library in Gregory Hall are widely regarded as 
among the best in the nation. 



EDUCATION 



In addition to research conducted principally within academic de- 
partments, the following units, with specialized research interests, are 
supported by the college: the Bureau of Educational Research, the 
Center for the Study of Reading, the National Center for Research in 
Vocational Education, and the Secondary Transitional Intervention 
Effectiveness Institute. Most of these units offer assistantships or 
fellowships to qualified doctoral students. 



ENGINEERING 



The College of Engineering was one of the original units of the 
University when it was founded in 1867. Recognized as a major 
international center of research and instructional excellence, the col- 
lege has more than 400 faculty members and an academic support staff 
of 250 professionals. Eighteen faculty members have been named to 
the National Academy of Engineering, nine to the National Academy 
of Sciences, and eight to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. 
In addition, about 200 distinguished faculty visitors from all over the 
world are in residence on campus at any one time, participating fully 
in the academic life of the college. The college's annual enrollment is 
5,000 undergraduate and 2,300 graduate students. Each year, the 
college awards approximately 1,100 B.S. degrees, 500 M.S. degrees, 
and 200 Ph.D. degrees. 

The mission of the College of Engineering is to meet society's needs 
through excellence in education, research, and service to the public. 
The educational program strives to instill in students the values, 
vision, and training necessary to develop excellent technical, leader- 
ship, and communication skills. Through classwork and extracurricu- 
lar activities, the college promotes a philosophy that emphasizes 
professionalism and embraces lifelong learning. 

The college pioneered an interdisciplinary approach to engineer- 
ing instruction and research that has proven beneficial for the gradu- 
ates of the program and for society. At the undergraduate level, this 
approach is demonstrated by the senior design project, which de- 
mands that the student concurrently apply technical skills, practical 
thinking, and communications and human relations skills. At the 
graduate level, most degrees earned are awarded to students whose 
research is supported within an interdisciplinary team. 

The college recognizes teaching excellence and rewards outstand- 
ing teachers. The coveted Everitt Award for Teaching Excellence is 
given annually to an outstanding faculty member. Many faculty 
members have also received awards for their instructional excellence 
from their departments, the campus, and industry. 

Advising students is a responsibility shared by the entire faculty. 
Each year, the college recognizes the dedication of its top advisers by 
awarding them the prestigious Andersen Consulting Award for Ex- 
cellence in Advising. Because the student body is large, the college has 
developed a strong, well-organized system for advising students. 
Upon entering a department, all undergraduate students are assigned 
to a senior staff member who serves as their faculty adviser. Each 
department also has a senior adviser, who is accessible to the students 
at any time and who acts as a liaison between the department and the 
college. At the college level, deans in the Office of Academic Programs 
help students make academic decisions, set career goals, resolve 



Programs of Study 



academic and personal concerns, and find suitable career opportuni- 
ties upon graduation. Shortly after being accepted for graduate stud- 
ies, graduate students select their faculty adviser. Graduate students 
are guided through their thesis research and teaching activities by 
faculty members who work closely with them. 

The college's research areas embrace the fundamental and the 
practical, addressing our society's need for solutions to today's prob- 
lems and for new knowledge upon which tomorrow's achievements 
can be built. With separately budgeted research expenditures of more 
than $80 million, the college places among the top engineering re- 
search programs nationally. 

Students at all levels receive practical benefits from the strong 
research environment created by the college's well-funded research 
activities and programs. Students have access to state-of-the-art equip- 
ment in classrooms and laboratories, and they are educated by faculty 
members who are investigating and working with some of today's 
most exciting technology. Many of the research groups offer under- 
graduate students the opportunity to actively participate in research 
projects. 

The college's teaching and research laboratories are up-to-date 
and remain so through a program of continuous renewal. With the 
support and counsel of its industrial sponsors, the college is able to 
maintain many state-of-the-art undergraduate laboratories. Modern 
classroom facilities, many equipped with the latest computer and 
multimedia technology, create a learning environment that enhances 
the educational experience. 

The college has three major interdisciplinary research laboratories: 
the Coordinated Science Laboratory (CSL), the Materials Research 
Laboratory (MRL), and the Microelectronics Laboratory. 

The Coordinated Science Laboratory provides an interdiscipli- 
nary research environment for faculty members and students from 
engineering and other disciplines. Research concentrates on such 
areas as semiconductor physics, semiconductor materials and de- 
vices, computer systems, communications, VLSI circuits, artificial 
intelligence, signal processing, supercomputing, and robotics. 

The Materials Research Laboratory emphasizes multidisciplinary 
research basic to an understanding of the solid state of matter and is 
one of the country's outstanding facilities for electron microscopy and 
microanalysis of materials. The laboratory's four highly interdiscipli- 
nary research programs are supported by the U.S. Department of 
Energy and the National Science Foundation. They are metals and 
ceramics (DOE), solid-state sciences (DOE), materials science and 
engineering (NSF), and the Science and Technology Center for Super- 
conductivity (NSF). 

The Microelectronics Laboratory, which houses the National Sci- 
ence Foundation-sponsored Engineering Research Center for 
Compund Semiconductor Microelectronics, is a multidisciplinary 
facility for the investigation of new concepts in optical and electronic 
materials, devices, and systems based on gallium arsenide and other 
compund semiconductors. The laboratory includes special facilities 
for the development of artificially structured materials, submicron 
device fabrication, ultrahigh-speed optical and electrical measure- 
ments, and characterization of ultrahigh-purity semiconductors. 

The Coordinated Science Laboratory and the Materials Research 
Laboratory cooperate in the operation of a multisystem molecular 
beam epitaxy facility called the EpiCenter. All three laboratories 
provide opportunities for researchers in industry and the University 
to collaborate on research projects. 

Some unique research centers are part of the college. These include 
the Air Conditioning and Ri ifrigerat ion Center, theCenter for Compu- 
tation,) I Ele< trunks, the Center for Laser-Aided Materials Processing, 
theCenter for Reliable and 1 1 igh- Performance Computing, theCenter 
for Supercomputing Research and Development, the Institute for 
Competitive Manufacturing, the Knowledge-Based Engineering Sys- 
tems Rcscin h I ,il Moratory, the Manufacturing Research Center, and 
the Science and Technology Center for Cement-Based Composite 
rhea programs address special interdisciplinary needs in 
ill) importanl technological areas. They share the common 
goal of providing superioi re lean h i apabilities in the fundamental

tectures. Vector multiprocessors include the four-processor CRAY Y- 
MP/464andCRAY-2S/4-128machinesandtheeight-processorCON- 
VEX C3880. The CONVEX C3880 is the centerpiece of the Numerical 
Laboratory, where scientific visualizations can be performed interac- 
tively in real time. Massively parallel computers are two versions of 
Thinking Machines' Connection Machine, the CM-2 (32,768 proces- 
sors) and the CM-5 (512 SPARC chip-based nodes). At the Beckman 
Institute for Advanced Science and Technology, NCSA's Virtual 
Reality Laboratory allows users to enter a three-dimensional space, 
exploring data by being immersed in it. NCSA is now working with 
three other NSF supercomputer centers to form a National Computa- 
tional Environment accessible anywhere on the national network. 

The college is part of one of the most advanced campus networks 
in the nation. This network gives faculty members and students access 
to all central computing facilities and to regional and national net- 
works. Shared by all undergraduate and graduate engineering stu- 
dents, the Engineering Workstations Laboratories are equipped with 
someof today's most advanced engineering workstations. Each work- 
station is a stand-alone computer with its own disk drive, memory and 
cpu, and file and resource sharing capabilities. The workstation 
platforms in the Engineering Workstations Laboratories are equipped 
with some of today's most advanced engineering workstations. Each 
workstation is a stand-alone computer with its own disk drive, memory 
and cpu, and file and resource sharing capabilities. 

The state-of-the-art Grainger Engineering Library Information 
Center, completed in 1994, provides students, faculty, and the busi- 
ness community with an excellent environment for study, group 
collaborative projects, and casual reading. The Grainger Center houses 
300,00(1 volumes of the University's 500,000-volume engineering col- 
lection; the collection is augmented by smaller collections in a number 
of departmental libraries. Its resources include a digital imaging 
laboratory, a computer and multimedia laboratory, instructional ser- 
vices laboratories, an information retrieval research laboratory, and 
high-tech classrooms. Using workstations located throughout the 
University's library system, patrons can access more than five million 
references to articles and journals. 

FINE AND APPLIED ARTS 

The schools and departments in the College of Fine and Applied Arts 
have excellent facilities. These include the Krannert Center for the 
Performing Arts, the Krannert Art Museum, practice rooms, studios, 
laboratories, exhibition spaces, and specialized libraries. 

The Krannert Center for the Performing Arts provides studio 
space for classes in theatre, dance, and music; students participate in 
many of the public performances in its four theatres as well as in other 
theatres on campus. Music students use the rehearsal rooms, studios, 
and auditoriums in Smith Music Hall and in the Music Building. The 
work of students receiving M.F.A. degrees in the School of Art and 
Design is exhibited in the Krannert Art Museum, which is connected 
to the Art and Design Building. Students in the School of Architecture 
exhibit their work in the Temple Buell Architecture Gallery. 

Throughout the year, many visiting artists, performers, and speak- 
ers are brought to the campus by the college and its departments. 
Comprehensive libraries in art and architecture, city planning and 
landscape architecture, and music serve students and faculty. 

LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 

Among the major resources and facilities for graduate students in the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are libraries, museums, laborato- 
ries, clinical and training facilities, quantitative services, and interdis- 
ciplinary research efforts. A number of schools and departments in the 
college have superb departmental libraries conveniently located near 
the units. In particular, the libraries in chemistry, life sciences, and 
mathematics are exceptional. Some collections for the humanities and 
social sciences are outstanding, for example, the Slavic collection, the 
Asian Library, and the Map and ( leography Library. 

The Herbarium, administered by the School of Life Sciences, is the 
tenth largest herbarium at an American university It is both a research 
and a teaching facility, and its staff serves the public by assisting in the 
identification of plants. 

The Museum ofNatural History has served graduate students and 
faculty members since the 1870s. A number of special collections, 
mi hading reptiles, amphibians, mammals, and shells from all parts of 



Undergraduate Admission 



the world are housed in the museum Research specimens for ad- 
vanced scientific stud] number more than 400,000. 

rwot oUections oi special note in the humanities are the American 
Center oi the lntern.ition.il Photographic Archive of Papyri and the 
Cinema Studies Film Archive 

The World Heritage Museum houses more than 25,000 artifacts 
that illustrate cultural achievements from prehistoric Europe; ancient 
Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome; northern Europe; Africa; 
Asia and America, the museum's collections are heavily used by 
I niversity classes m history, art history, classics, and anthropology 
for general tours and individual research projects. 

The Department of Psychology operates the Psychological Ser- 
vices Center, which is the principal faculty for training and research in 
clinical psychology. The Department of Speech and Hearing Science 
operates throe clinics (speech, language, and hearing) to provide 
training for its students. The Department of Astronomy operates two 
observing facilities jointly with other institutions for research and 
training purposes: a one-meter optical telescope at Mt. Laguna in 
California (with San Diego State University), and a six-element milli- 
meter-wavelength radio telescope array at Hat Creek in California 
(with the University of California at Berkeley and the University of 
Maryland). Observing time for students at other sites, including 
national observatories, may also be arranged through faculty 
supervisors. 

All of the units in the life sciences, the physical sciences, psychol- 
ogy, and speech and hearing science have extensive laboratory facili- 
ties. There are also two outstanding laboratories in the humanities and 
social sciences: the Language Learning Laboratory and the Spatial 
Data Analysis Laboratory in the Department of Geography, described 
below. 

Also of particular note are the facilities of the School of Chemical 
Sciences, which include molecular spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, 
and laser spectroscopy laboratories; a radioisotope laboratory; a com- 
puter center; a microanalytical laboratory; hydrogenation and high- 
pressure facilities; and machine, electronic, electrical, and glass-blow- 
ing shops. 

The Language Learning Laboratory (LLL), in addition to provid- 
ing teaching facilities, promotes research in language learning and 
teaching. Advanced technological resources, including international 
video reception, audio, microcomputers, and television production 
facilities are available for the LLL. 

The Writers' Workshop is a tutorial facility dedicated to the 
improvement of writing on campus at all levels. Administered by the 
Center for Writing Studies, the workshop offers writing assistance 
and advice to students enrolled in any course offered at the University. 
The workshop is staffed entirely by graduate students with expertise 
in writing, and graduate students working on theses and dissertations 
are among its most regular clients. 

The Spatial Data Analysis Laboratory, which is administered by 
the Department of Geography, is responsible for developing and 
improving research and instruction related to the acquisition, analy- 
sis, and display of spatial data. Technical service facilities (including 
electronic coordinate digitizers, computer terminals, graphics termi- 
nals, and a remote sensing and air photo laboratory) are available. 

Special computing resources are available in many departments in 
the college; in addition, all units on campus have access to the 
Computing and Communications Services Office (see page 6). 

The Department of Statistics, through the Illinois Statistics Office 
(ISO), provides a consulting service to faculty members and graduate 
students from all areas of the University. The service provides assis- 
tance in design and analysis of various statistical projects. 

Units in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences participate in a 
number of campuswide interdisciplinary efforts, many of which are 
described elsewhere in this catalog. Some of the instructional units in 
the college are by nature interdisciplinary. The area studies centers 
(African Studies, East Asian and Pacific Studies, Latin American and 
Caribbean Studies, and Russian and East European Studies) are 
examples of these; their degree programs are described in the Pro- 
grams of Study section. There are two other special units: the Unit for 
Cinema Studies and the Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory. 

The Unit for Cinema Studies promotes and coordinates the critical 
and historical study of the cinema. Its membership represents several 
departments and reflects various critical and scholarly interests. The 
unit is also a resource center that promotes cinema teaching and 
scholarship through its growing archive of film materials and its 
editorial and analytical equipment for film study. 



The Unit for Criticism and Interpretive Theory, an interdiscipli- 
nary program drawing upon fifteen humanities and social science 
departments, promotes a broad range of teaching, research, and 
related scholarly activities. For M.A. and Ph.D. degree students in 
participating departments, the unit offers a formal program leading to 
advanced certification in criticism and interpretive theory. 

There are a number of other groups (some informal) of faculty and 
students working together on interdisciplinary studies. Examples of 
these are the Afro-American Academic and Research Program; the 
Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security; 
the Southwest Asia Studies Program; and the Women's Studies 
Program. 

VETERINARY MEDICINE 

The graduate programs in the College of Veterinary Medicine empha- 
size research training involving animal health, pharmacology, infec- 
tious and metabolic diseases, pathology, toxicology, zoonotic dis- 
eases, reproductive physiology, public health, neurobiology, biotech- 
nology, comparative medicine, and bone/ cartilage studies. The col- 
lege has new, modern clinical and basic sciences facilities for graduate 
study and research ranging from basic biotechnology to applied 
clinical and field studies under controlled confinement and natural 
environmental conditions. Major emphasis is being placed on gradu- 
ate training in biotechnology. Interdisciplinary research is ongoing 
with other colleges on the Urbana-Champaign campus and at the 
Dixon Springs Agricultural Center in southern Illinois. The college's 
association with the Illinois State Department of Agriculture, Depart- 
ment of Public Health, and Department of Conservation provides 
opportunities to use field facilities for appropriate research projects. 

Undergraduate Admission 



REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES 

Since the information in this two-year catalog is subject to change, 
prospective applicants should contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover for admission require- 
ments and applications for a specific term. A complete listing of fields 
of study and their admission requirements is given in the booklet 
Undergraduate Admissions Information, available with application ma- 
terials each September from the Office of Admissions and Records; 
Illinois high school students may obtain these materials from their 
high school counselors. 

Admission counselors on campus in 177 Henry Administration 
Building are available for consultation on weekdays, excluding cam- 
pus holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to noon and from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. 
Appointments are recommended and can be made by calling (217) 
333-0302. The Campus Visitors Center offers campus tours and infor- 
mational sessions for prospective students and their families. (See 
Campus Visitors Center, page 2.) The Chicago Satellite Office, located 
at 815 West Van Buren in Chicago, also has counselors available for 
consultation. Appointments can be made by calling (312) 996-9158. 

UNDERGRADUATE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES 

An undergraduate applicant to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign may choose a field of interest from more than 150 pro- 
grams of study. These programs are referred to throughout this 
catalog as majors, options, or curricula, and are explained in detail in 
the individual college sections found elsewhere in this catalog. 

In addition to the specific degree programs offered by all colleges, 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers preprofessional educa- 
tion for the fields of advertising, dentistry, journalism, law, medical 
dietetics, medical laboratory sciences, medical record administration, 
medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, 
and veterinary medicine. 

Teacher education curricula are available in the Colleges of Agri- 
culture, Applied Life Studies, Education, Fine and Applied Arts, and 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT CONSIDERATIONS 

The number of admissions to each undergraduate college and curricu- 
lum is carefully monitored to ensure that no more students are 



Programs of Study 



enrolled than the faculty and facilities can support. Each prospective 
student applies for admission to one of the eight undergraduate 
colleges or the Institute of Aviation, and to only one curriculum within 
that college or institute. 

Because admission is highly competitive, each applicant's initial 
choice of college and curriculum is important and should be carefully 
considered in consultation with counselors and parents. Due to the 
great interest in admission to all programs, there usually is not an 
opportunity for a student to ask for reconsideration of admission for 
an alternate program after an initial admission decision has been 
made. 

A prospective student undecided about a major field of study in a 
particular college may wish to consider applying for admission to one 
of the curricula not requiring students to declare degree program 
majors until the end of the sophomore year. These are the core 
curriculum in the College of Agriculture, the unassigned curriculum 
in the College of Commerce and Business Administration, the general 
education curriculum in the College of Education, and the general 
curriculum in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

A beginning freshman is required to remain in the college and the 
prescribed freshman program to which he or she has been admitted 
for at least two semesters of full-time study. 

A transfer student is obligated to remain in the college and, 
possibly, the curriculum to which he or she has been admitted for at 
least the first semester of enrollment. A student on campus who 
wishes to transfer to another college must meet the accepting college's 
admission requirements and compete for any available space. Due to 
enrollment controls, transfer to some programs is very competitive. 
For example, the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
and the College of Engineering will consider only transfer students 
with 60 hours of prerequisite course work. 

The opportunity to enroll as a nondegree student is limited in the 
fall and spring semesters, and priority is given to University employ- 
ees and residents of the community who wish to enroll in courses that 
are offered only at the University. There is no restriction on the 
number of nondegree students who may attend the summer session. 

ADMISSION OR RETURNING DENIED BECAUSE OF 
MISCONDUCT 

The University reserves the right either to deny admission or return to 
any person because of previous misconduct that may substantially 
affect the interest of the University, or to admit or permit the return of 
such a person on an appropriate disciplinary status. The admission or 
return of such a person will not be approved or denied until his or her 
case has been heard by the appropriate disciplinary committee. This 
applies to persons not now enrolled in the University who might 
apply for admission or wish to return. A favorable action of the 
appropriate disciplinary committee does not abrogate the right of any 
dean or director to deny admission or return on the basis of 
scholarship. 

UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSION CATEGORIES 

Applicants for undergraduate admission comprise the several catego- 
ries that are defined in this section. A prospective applicant may then 
refer to the general requirements for admission and to the succeeding 
section most appropriate for his or her situation. 

Beginning Freshman. A beginning freshman applicant is either one 
who applies for admission while attending high school, regardless of 
the amount of college credit earned, or one who has graduated from 
high school but completed fewer than 12 semester hours or 18 quarter 

oi transferable college < lassroom credit by the desired term of 
entry. A high school midyear graduate planning to attend a collegiate 
institution before admission to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign for the fall term should apply as a beginning freshman 
during his or her last fall term In high < hool; sui h an applicant is 

ted primarily on the basis oi high school credentials and an 
nd may complete more than 12 semester hours 

of transferabli iom credit at another institution before 

it at the Urbana < ham] 

rransfer Applicant. A rran ferapplicantisone who (1) nasi nmpleted 
a minimum of i i rter hours of transferable college 

fenri andl !)doesnol meet the 
hm oran idmission applicant. 



Returning Student. A returning student is one who has previously 
registered on the campus as an undergraduate degree candidate and 
has not earned a degree. 

Second Bachelor's Degree Applicant. A second bachelor's degree 
applicant is one who has earned a bachelor's degree and wishes to 
continue study for another bachelor's degree. 

Nondegree Applicant. A nondegree applicant is one who wishes to 
take courses for credit, but either does not qualify for a degree 
program or does not intend to earn a degree from the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. 

SPECIAL ADMISSIONS 

An applicant who is not otherwise eligible, and for whom evidence 
clearly establishes (1) qualifications to do satisfactory work and (2) 
extenuating circumstances judged worthy of special consideration, 
may have his or her application reviewed and may be admitted with 
the approval of the director of the Office of Admissions and Records 
and the dean of the college concerned. 

For experimental and special programs that provide academic 
support services, space may be reserved for applicants of different 
qualifications, not to exceed 10 percent of the entering freshman class 
of the previous fall term. 

Appeals for special consideration after denial of admission are 
generally unsuccessful since admission spaces usually have been 
filled by that time. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

The following general University policies are applicable to all under- 
graduate applicants at both the beginning freshman and transfer 
student levels. 

To be eligible for consideration for admission, an applicant must 
meet certain requirements in terms of age, high school graduation, 
high school credits, college preparatory subject requirements, and 
competence in English. 

Age. An applicant must be at least fifteen years of age by the time of 
desired enrollment. 

High School Graduation. An applicant must be a graduate of a 
regionally accredited high school, a school in Illinois recognized by 
the state superintendent of education, or a school elsewhere with a 
rating equivalent to full recognition; graduates of other secondary 
schools and nongraduates of secondary schools may be admitted 
under the provisions for use of the General Educational Development 
Test. 

General Educational Development Test (GED). The achievement of 
satisfactory scores on the General Educational Development Test is 
acceptable in lieu of graduation from an accredited high school. This 
test alone will not fulfill all of the college preparatory subject 
requirements. 

A standard score of 35 on each of the five tests and an average 
standard score of 45 on all five tests are the minimum scores needed 
to provide the following high school credit: 9 semesters of English, 8 
semesters of social studies, and 7 semesters of general science. This is 
a total of 24 semesters (12 units) of college preparatory subject matter 
and a total of 30 semesters (1 5 units) of high school credit. To be eligible 
to take these tests, applicants must be at least eighteen years of age or 
have been out of school for at least one year. Additional information 
is available upon request from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

If to be used in lieu of high school graduation, General Educational 
Development Test scores should be sent by the testing center directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

High School Credits. Applicants for admission to all curricula must 
present a total of at least 15 units of acceptable college preparatory 
schoolwork. Graduates of schools organized as three-year senior high 
schools, including grades ten, eleven, and twelve, must have at least 
12 units in the senior highsc hool C redit earned prior to grade nine is 
acceptable if the transcript of credit, certified by the senior high school, 
shows the credit as high school credit from grade eight. A unit course 
of study in the secondary school is a course covering an academic year 

and including not less than the equivalent ol 120 sixty-minute hours 
of classroom work. Two hours of work requiring little or no prepara- 
tion out side the > lass are considered as the equivalent to one hour of 
prepared i lassroom work Fractional units of the value less than one-

2. Three or three and one-half units of maftemoh'cs, including algebra, 
geometry, and advanced geometry; see the following table for 
those curricula requiring three and one-half units, including trigo- 
nometry. Applied business mathematics, pre-algebra, and com- 
puter courses are not acceptable. Algebra completed in grade eight 
will count as one unit of high school algebra. 

3. Two units of laboratory science. Laboratory courses in biology, 
chemistry, or physics are preferred. Laboratory courses in as- 
tronomy and geology are also acceptable. General science is not 
acceptable. 

4. Two units of any one foreign language (or completion of the second 
level) is required. 

5. Two units ot social studies. History and government are preferred. 
Additional acceptable social studies include anthropology, eco- 
nomics, geography, philosophy, political science, psychology, and 
sociology. 

6. Two additional units of flexible courses drawn from any of the above 
five subject categories. Approved art, music, or vocational educa- 
tion courses may be counted in the flexible academic units 
category. 

The subject pattern requirements are waived for transfer appli- 
cants who will have completed 30 or more semester hours of transfer- 
able college credit by the date of enrollment at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus. 

A student who lacks a required high school subject may satisfy the 
requirement at either a community college or elsewhere prior to 
enrollment at the University. This information must be communi- 
cated on the application for admission. One semester in college is the 
equivalent of 2 semesters of high school course work. 

Under extenuating circumstances, a specific subject requirement 
may be waived for otherwise well-qualified applicants. An applicant 
seeking a waiver of the subject pattern requirement should use the 
Background Statement section of the application to state the rationale 
for requesting such action.

GUIDELINES FOR ACCEPTING COLLEGE CREDITS EARNED BY 
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS 

1 . A college course taken by a high school student at a high school or 
college and applied toward the UIUC high school subject pattern 
requirement (see above) will not be awarded credit at UIUC. 

2. A college course taken by a high school student with a high school 
student population will not be awarded credit at UIUC (see item 4 
below for possible course credit options). 



3. A transferable college course taken by a high school student at a 
college or university and not applied toward the UIUC high school 
subject pattern requirement may be awarded credit at UIUC and 
the grade may be included in the transfer grade- point average. This 
includes concurrent enrollment course work taken at a college or 
university with a college student population and taught by a 
college faculty member. 

4. College credit can be awarded to high school students by earning 
an acceptable score on: (1) Advanced Placement (AP) Program 
examinations administered nationally each May; (2) UIUC Depart- 
mental Proficiency Examinations offered in all University courses 
normally open to freshmen and sophomores; many examinations 
are offered each semester as part of the new student activities. 

Competence in English. A minimum requirement for competence in 
English applies to all University students. Undergraduate applicants 
for admission may satisfy this minimum requirement by certifying 
that one of the following conditions has been fulfilled in a country 
where English is the primary language and in a school in which 
English is the primary language of instruction: 

— Graduation with credit for 3 units, or the equivalent, of English 
from a secondary school; 

— or successful completion of a minimum of two academic years of 
full-time study at the secondary school or collegiate level immedi- 
ately prior to the proposed date of enrollment in the University. 

For an applicant who does not meet one of the above conditions, 
evidence can be provided by achieving a satisfactory score on a test of 
competence in English. The test(s) to be used and the minimum 
score(s) shall be subject to approval by the University Committee on 
Admissions with the advice of the University's Technical Committee 
on Testing. This requirement may be waived upon agreement by the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the dean of the 
college concerned if evidence of competence in English presented by 
the applicant clearly justifies such action. 

ADDITIONAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

A few colleges and curricula have admission requirements in addition 
to the regular academic standards. Instructions on how to fulfill these 
additional requirements are forwarded to students soon after their 
applications are received. Students should be aware that additional time is 
required to process applications for admission to curricula with additional 
admission requirements. Students denied on thebasisof additional admission 
requirements may find all admission spaces filled in alternative programs at 
the time of notification. Thus, such applicants shoidd apply early and may 
also wish to apply to other institutions. The following chart indicates the 
colleges and curricula with additional admission requirements.

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL HEALTH 

New students may be required to present evidence of satisfactory 
physical and mental health to the director of health services. Each 
admitted applicant will receive a Student Health Report form, which 
he or she must use to report proof of immunity to certain vaccine- 
preventable diseases as defined by state law and required by Univer- 
sity regulations, as well as any other pertinent medical data, to the 
director of the McKinley Health Center at Urbana-Champaign. A 
minor (someone under eighteen years of age at the time of registra- 
tion) must submit the Student Health Report form with a parent's or 
guardian's written authorization for the student to receive treatment 
at the McKinley Health Center. A student who fails to return the 
completed Student Health Report form by the date shown on the form 



Programs of Study 



and who fails to comply by the end of the first term of enrollment is 
prohibited by state law from subsequent enrollment in the University. 
Upon the advice of a McKinley Health Center physician, admission or 
readmission of a student may be denied until the student is cleared by 
the McKinley Health Center. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago 
should request that their Student Health Report forms be transferred 
by the health center on that campus to the McKinley Health Center. 

Military personnel may have their Student Health Report forms 
completed by a military physician. 

TUBERCULOSIS CONTROL 

New and readmitted students are encouraged to present evidence of 
freedom from tuberculosis at the McKinley Health Center. All new 
international studentsare required to complete a tubercidosisscreeningat the 
McKinley Health Center before completing registration. 

Final evidence of freedom from tuberculosis is established by 
either a negative tuberculin skin test performed within the last twelve 
months by a health care provider in the United States, or a negative 
tuberculin skin test performed at the McKinley Health Center at 
Urbana-Champaign prior to registration. 

A person who has a positive skin test is required to have a chest X- 
ray. A person with a known history of positive reaction to the tuber- 
culosis skin test will not be retested, but will require a chest X-ray to 
show evidence of freedom from active tuberculosis. An individual 
who has had a chest X-ray performed within the previous twelve 
months will not require an additional chest X-ray if the previous chest 
X-ray is obtainable and meets the University's chest X-ray standards. 
A student with a positive skin test must schedule an appointment in 
the Tuberculosis Screening Clinic at McKinley Health Center to re- 
view his or her health history. 

ADMISSION OF BEGINNING FRESHMEN 

Dates for filing complete applications for admission are given in the 
following and other application calendars. Each deadline date applies 
as long as space remains available in the desired curriculum. Any 
applicant claiming exceptional circumstances that justify special con- 
sideration should appeal in writing to the director of admissions and 
records for an extension of filing deadline dates. Only rarely, however, 
are spaces available by these late dates, and applicants are encouraged 
to apply during the periods indicated in the application calendars. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for 
admission, application guidelines based on previous years' admis- 
sion decisions are published annually in the application materials. 
They are guidelines only. Final admission standards depend upon the 
number and qualifications of applicants to each program. 

Admission decisions are based primarily on the following objec- 
tive criteria: (a) the courses taken in high school and (b) a combination 
of high school rank in class and admission test score. Anyone ap- 
proved for admission must have at least a one-in-two (50 percent) 
chance of achieving a 3.0 (C) average for one or more terms of the first 
academic year on the campus. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum 
exceeds the admission quota, those best qualified will be admitted. 
"Best qualified" will be determined by a combination of high school 
rank in class and admission test score. In determining the admission 
of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive applicant 
pool, additional criteria may be considered. These additional factors 
are described in the Background Statement section that follows. 

ADMISSION TEST INFORMATION 

Each beginning freshman applicant, regardless of rank in class or 

length of time out of si hool, is required to submit an admission test

A prospective applicant is urged to complete an admission test in 
the spring of his or her junior year in high school. 

BACKGROUND STATEMENT 

Objective academic qualifications will be the major factors considered 
in admission decisions. In addition, the Office of Admissions and 
Records also attempts to identify those applicants whose class ranks 
and admission test scores or transfer grade-point averages may 
underpredict their likelihood of success, and those whose admission 
would add diversity to the educational and social environment of the 
campus. 

An applicant who believes that his or her academic credentials do 
not adequately reflect his or her potential may complete the Back- 
ground Statement on the application form. The applicant should be 
aware, however, that unless he or she is close to meeting the guidelines 
published for the college to which application is being made, the 
Background Statement may have little impact on the admission 
decision. 

A student who attends a highly selective high school for which a 
profile may not be on file with the Office of Admissions and Records 
is urged to have a counselor attach the school profile to the student's 
transcript and to request a review through the Background Statement. 

Among the factors the Office of Admissions and Records may 
consider in making decisions are (1) extenuating circumstances that 
significantly affected, for a period of time, an otherwise exceptionally 
good academic record; (2) an economically disadvantaged environ- 
ment; (3) an age group or a cultural or ethnic background that will add 
diversity to the campus; (4) completion of Advanced Placement or 
honors-level courses in high school; (5) significant work experiences 
related to the requested field of study; and (6) performance at a level 
that has brought state or national recognition in a specific field of 
endeavor. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a freshman must submit the following 
(all credentials presented for admission or readmission become the 
permanent property of the University, are not subsequently released 
to the student or to another individual or institution, and are not held 
for reconsideration of admission to subsequent terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application 
forms are available from high school counselors and from the 
Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside back 
cover. High school students should submit applications through 
their high schools. 

— A $30 ($40 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The 
University is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. 

— An official high school transcript sent directly to the Office of 
Admissions and Records from the high school showing course 
work completed by the applicant, the date of graduation, and the 
size of the graduating class and the applicant's numerical rank. 
(Since it is the policy of the University to accept for admission the 
academically best qualified of applicants competing for limited 
spaces, the University needs an objective measure of the applicant's 
academic qualification that is comparable to measures used by 
other high schools. Descriptive statements are generally not com- 
parable from school to school and probably will work to the 
applicant's disadvantage unless accompanied by a numerical class 
rank. Therefore, high school personnel are urged to provide a numerical 
class ranking. Students from three-year senior high schools should 
request that certification of work taken in the ninth grade be 
included on or with the transcript. Eighth-grade work for high 
school credit also should be included.) 

— An official admission test score report (ACT or SAT) sent directly 
to the Office of Admissions and Records from the testing agency. 

— A transcript of any college-level course work completed by the 
freshman applicant sent directly from the collegiate institution 
attended.

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER APPLICANTS 



TRANSFER STUDENTS FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS 
AT CHICAGO 

Undergraduate transfer students between the University of Illinois at 
Chicago and the Urbana-Champaign campus may be admitted to 
undergraduate programs on the other campus for which spaces are 
available for transfers from other colleges and universities, provided 
that they meet the requirements of the desired programs at the other 
campus for admission of on-campus transfers. Generally, admission 
opportunities are better in all curricula if applicants have junior 
standing (60 semester hours or 90 quarter hours). To be ensured 
consideration as intercampus transfers by the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, students currently enrolled at the Chicago campus should 
apply for transfer consideration for the spring term between Septem- 
ber 25 and November 1, and for the summer or fall term between 
February 1 and March 15. 

Applicants to the Urbana-Champaign campus are encouraged to 
go to the Chicago Office of Admissions and Records, where copies of 
official credentials will be enclosed with their application and where 
current enrollment can be verified to permit waiving of the applica- 
tion fee. 

TRANSFER APPLICANTS PREVIOUSLY DROPPED OR PLACED 
ON PROBATION FOR DISCIPLINARY REASONS 

A petition for admission of a transfer student who either is on 
disciplinary probation or has been dropped from another collegiate 
institution for disciplinary reasons must be approved by the appropri- 
ate subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Student Discipline. 

REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION 

To assist prospective applicants in assessing their opportunities for 
admission, transfer grade-point average guidelines are published in 
the Undergraduate Admissions Information booklet available with appli- 
cation materials each September from the Office of Admissions and 
Records. These are guidelines only, and the final standards will 
depend on the number and qualifications of the applicants to each 
program. 



Admission of a transfer applicant is based on a combination of the 
hours and content of transferable credit and the transfer grade-point 
average. The minimum transfer grade-point average is 3.25 (C = 3.0); 
most curricula require a higher grade-point average. 

If the number of qualified applicants to a college or curriculum 
exceeds the admission quota, those best qualified will be admitted, 
and preference may be given to residents of Illinois. Lower-division 
transfer applicants may be restricted when campus space is limited. 

Additional criteria may be considered in determining the admis- 
sion of those applicants near the borderline of the competitive appli- 
cant pool; these additional factors are described in the Background 
Statement section on page 14. An applicant who has had a significant 
break in the pursuit of an education and can demonstrate an improved 
academic performance, or an applicant for whom relocation from the 
Urbana-Champaign community would present a major hardship, 
may wish to address such a factor in the Background Statement 
section of the application for admission. 

Eligibility of a transfer applicant with fewer than 30 semester 
hours of graded transferable classroom credit is based on (1) high 
school percentile rank and ACT or SAT test score, and (2) grade-point 
average and content of transferable courses attempted. 

GRADE-POINT AVERAGES 

Grade-point averages are calculated on the basis of all transferable 
courses attempted for which grades are assigned and for which grade- 
point values can be determined. When a course is repeated, the grade- 
point average is computed using both grades and all hours for the 
course. Incomplete grades are accepted as defined by the initiating 
institution. Grades in other course work completed, such as technical 
courses similar in content and level to courses taught at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, may be used in the evaluation for 
admission upon request of the college to which a student seeks 
admission. 

Since the grade-point average used to establish admission qualifi- 
cations is based on all transferable course work attempted, applicants 
from institutions with "forgiveness" grading policies (those that may 
delete grades for course work failed and/or repeated) may find their 
opportunities limited to special admission (see page 12). If the appli- 
cants are admitted and subsequently register, transfer grade-point 
averages may not be recorded on their University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign records since the grading policies of the transfer institu- 
tions and this campus are not comparable. 

ACCEPTANCE OF CREDIT FROM OTHER COLLEGIATE 
INSTITUTIONS 

Credit may be accepted for advanced standing from another accred- 
ited university or college. Accepted credit will be based on evaluation 
of the primary transcript of record of each institution attended. 
Duplicate credit will be counted in the grade-point average but 
excluded from hours earned. A student who has passed a course at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may not be given credit 
for the same course taken elsewhere. 

ACCEPTANCE OF TRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Admission of transfer students to the University of Illinois is based 
only on the transfer course work that is similar in nature, content, and 
level to that offered by the University of Illinois. Such courses are 
normally referred to as transfer or college-parallel work. Other course 
work completed, such as technical courses similar in content and level 
to courses taught at the University, will be used in evaluation for 
admission only upon the request of the dean of the college to which the 
student seeks admission. 

Transfer credit, as defined, will be accepted at full value for 
admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign if earned at: 

— Colleges and universities that offer degree programs comparable 
to programs offered by the University of Illinois and (1) are 
members of or hold Candidate for Accreditation status from the 
North Central Association of Colleges and Schools or another 
regional accrediting association, or (2) are accredited by another 
accrediting agency that is a member of the Council on Postsecondary 
Accreditation; or 

— Illinois public community colleges that are neither members of nor 
holders of Candidate for Accreditation status from the North 
Central Association of Colleges and Schools, but that are approved 
and recognized by the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) 



Programs of Study 



for a period of time not to exceed five years from the date on which 
the college registers its first class after achieving ICCB recognition. 

Certain colleges and universities do not meet the above specifica- 
tions but have been assigned a status by the University Committee on 
Admissions that permits credit to be accepted on a provisional basis 
for admission purposes on transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign. Transfer credit, as defined, from such colleges 
and universities is accepted only on a deferred basis, to be validated 
by satisfactory completion of additional work in residence. Validation 
through satisfactory work in residence may be accomplished by 
earning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, or another 
fully accredited 1 college or university, at least a 3.0 (A = 5.0) grade- 
point average (higher if prescribed by the curriculum the student 
wishes to enter) in the first 12 to 30 semester (18 to 45 quarter) hours 
completed after transfer. 

Credit transferred from an approved 1 community or junior college 
is limited only by the provision that the student must earn at least 60 
semester or 90 quarter hours required for the degree at the University 
or at any other approved 1 four-year college or university after attain- 
ing junior standing, except that the student must meet the residence 
requirements that apply to all students for a degree from the Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. When a school or college within 
the University requires three years of preprofessional college credit 
for admission, at least the last 30 semester or 45 quarter hours must be 
taken in an approved 1 four-year collegiate institution. 



1. Colleges and universities meeting one or more of the specifications as defined. 

In all cases, the precise amount of transfer credit that is applicable 
toward a particular degree will be determined by the University 
college and department concerned. 

ACCEPTANCE OF NONTRADITIONAL TRANSFER CREDIT 

Acceptance of credit awarded on bases other than collegiate class- 
room experiences will be considered for transfer admission purposes 
as follows: 

Test credit for admission as transfer credit. Students presenting test 
credit awarded elsewhere, or test scores for admission or transfer 
credit purposes, will have that credit evaluated against cutoff scores 
established for those examinations on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. Official score reports should be submitted to the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records along with the application for admission to the 
University. A student presenting test credit for which (1) no Urbana- 
Champaign campus policy exists, or (2) campus cutoff scores indicate 
no credit will be awarded, may still be granted transfer credit if the 
student (1 ) is transferring at least 12 graded classroom semester hours 
of acceptable college-level graded classroom course work from the 
institution or single campus in a multicampus institution that a warded 
the credit by examination; and (2) has successfully completed ad- 
vanced classroom course work at the institution awarding the test 
credit in a course that is acceptable under University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign transfer credit policiesand that can be considered 
as a sequential continuation of the material covered in the test. 

After admission, students not awarded credit under this policy 
may attempt departmental proficiency examinations to receive credit 
in those areas in which they claim competence. 

Credit for military training. The completion of six months or more of 
continuous active duty in the U.S. armed forces, including basic or 
recruit training, is accepted for advanced standing credit of 4 semester 
hours of basic military science on presentation of evidence along with 
an honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. Candi- 
.i graduation who are still in military service are entitled to the 

redit in military science may also be granted for other 
training completed in the service that is acceptable as the equivalent 

icers' framing! orps(ROTC) courses at the University

in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, and Navy 
specialized and technical schools. Criteria to determine acceptability 
include the specific degree requirements of the program of applica- 
tion, similarity to courses on this campus, and recommendation of the 
American Council on Education in the Guide to the Evaluation of 
Educational Experience in the Armed Services. 

All criteria are subject to the recommendations of the college to 
which the student seeks admission and the department that teaches 
similar course work. 

Credit earned in the College Training Programs of the Air Force, 
Army, Marine Corps, and Navy, which functioned during World War 
II, is accepted on the same basis as other credit from the colleges and 
universities where such credit was completed. 

Credit earned in academic courses sponsored by noncollegiate 
organizations, such as business, industry, and labor, not recognized 
by the April 1977 Board of Trustees policy statement. Credit earned 
in such courses is not normally accepted. Such credit may be evaluated 
for potential advanced standing in a specific degree program after 
admission and registration; this credit shall be subject to validation by 
proficiency examination or successful completion of advanced course 
work. Hours of this type of credit may be reduced from that shown by 
the originating agency. Criteria to determine acceptability for ad- 
vanced standing include the specific degree requirements of the 
program of enrollment, similarity to courses on this campus, and 
recommendations of the American Council on Education in The 
National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs. 

All criteria are subject to the recommendations of the college of 
enrollment and the department that offers similar courses. 

Credit for experiential learning. Experiential learning credit is not 
accepted for transfer admission purposes. A student who believes 
himself or herself to be knowledgeable in a specific course may be 
granted credit through established proficiency procedures by the 
college of enrollment and the department offering a similar course 
after admission and registration. 

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS 

An applicant for admission as a transfer student must submit the 
following (all credentials presented for admission or readmission 
become the permanent property of the University, are not subse- 
quently released to the student or to another individual or institution,

terms): 

— A completed admission application form. Admission application 
forms are available from the Office of Admissions and Records at 
the address on the inside back cover. 

— A $30 ($40 for international students) check or money order 
(amount subject to change), payable to the University of Illinois, in 
payment of the nonrefundable application processing fee. The 
University is not responsible for cash sent through the mail. Direct 
transfer applicants from the University of Illinois at Chicago are 
exempt from payment of this fee. 

— An official high school transcript received directly from the high 
school of graduation. 

— Official transcripts of all college work attempted received directly 
from the institution(s) attended. 

— ACT or SAT test score received directly from the testing company, 
and high school class rank received directly from the high school 
attended. These are required only if the transfer student has less 
than 30 semester hours of graded transferable classroom credit at 
the time of submission of the application.

RETURNING STUDENTS 





A student whose authorized enrollment period has not expired needs 
only to enroll for a term in order to return to the Urbana-Champaign 
campus. A returning student must provide an official transcript 
directly to the Office of Admissions and Records from each collegiate 
institution at which course work was attempted since last attendance 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Returning students are assigned 
an earliest registration time, after which the student may access the U 
of I Direct course enrollment system to select classes for a term. Earliest 
registration times begin shortly after the midpoint in the semester 
prior to the desired term of enrollment. 

A returning student has the same status as when the student left 
the campus and is authorized to return to the same college and 
curriculum in which the student was last enrolled. If a returning 
undergraduate wishes to change his/her college or curriculum, the 
student must contact the college of desired enrollment. A returning 
graduate student wishing to enroll in a different department must 
contact the new department for approval and then petition the Gradu- 
ate College to authorize the change. 

An encumbered student may enroll for courses but cannot com- 
plete registration until the encumbrance is cleared by the office that 
placed the encumbrance. Notification of student status appears on the 
U of I Direct system. The U of I Direct system displays the earliest 
registration time and date when the authorized enrollment period 
expires. Returning students who have forgotten their network pass- 
word must contact the Office of Admissions and Records to obtain a 
new password. 

A former student returning after the authorized enrollment period 
has expired must contact the dean of the college in which the student 
was last enrolled. The dean of the student's college can extend the 
authorized enrollment period to allow the student additional time to 
complete a degree. Each college has its own rules governing the reiurn 
of students whose authorized enrollment period has expired. 

Returning international students have an advising hold set by the 
Office of International Student Affairs. Returning international stu- 
dents must contact the International Student Affairs Office before 
starting the re-entry process. 

APPLICANTS FOR SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREES 

A second bachelor's degree applicant must meet the same require- 
ments for admission as a transfer applicant for the first degree. In 
addition, the applicant is required to submit a petition indicating the 
reasons for his or her choice of program and campus; this petition 
must be approved by the director of admissions and records and the 
dean of the college concerned. When space in a college or curriculum 
is inadequate, priority will be given to applicants seeking their first 
degrees. 

APPLICANTS FOR ADMISSION AS NONDEGREE 
STUDENTS 

Nondegree admission and enrollment are restricted to participants in 
special programs and to those with nondegree educational objectives 
that cannot be met at another institution. Permanent residents of the 
Champaign-Urbana area are given priority for nondegree admission. 
Nondegree applicants must choose one of two enrollment options: 



Academic Year. Fall and spring semesters, with summers optional. 

Summer Session Attendance Only. Enrollment not allowed for the 
tail or spring term; a separate application for admission is necessary 
to be considered for the academic year enrollment pattern (see page 
\9). An applicant holding a bachelor's degree who desires to take any 
300-level course for graduate credit or any 400-level course must 
apply for graduate nondegree status, regardless of the level of other 
courses in which the applicant desires to enroll. A graduate applicant 
slum Id complete the Application for Admission to the Graduate 
College and Application for Graduate Appointment form.

than 12 semester hours), are charged a $15 (amount subject to change) 
visitor's fee for each course attended. The fee is waived for persons 
sixty-five years of age or older. 

Persons registered for a full program (12 semester hours or more) 
may visit other courses without additional charges. Students holding 
scholarships, tuition waivers, or staff appointments generally may

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

The Office of Admissions and Records determines which students 
shall be classified as foreign (international) according to the following 
definition: A person who is a citizen or permanent resident alien of a 
country or political area other than the United States and has a 
residence outside the United States to which he or she expects to return 
and either is, or proposes to be, a temporary alien in the United States 
for educational purposes is classified as a foreign student. For admis- 
sion purposes, refugees-parolees and conditional entrants are classi- 
fied as foreign and shall meet all requirements imposed upon foreign 
students except for the certification of financial resources. 

International undergraduate applicants are urged to submit ad- 
mission applications and supporting documents approximately one 
year prior to the desired term of entry. Competition is extremely keen, 
and late applicants risk their chances for admission. Additional infor- 
mation and application materials are available from the Office of 
Admissions and Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission is competitive, and preference is given to those applicants 
determined to have the best potential for academic success at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The minimum require- 
ments for admission are: 

— Satisfaction of University minimum requirements in terms of age, 
high school graduation, high school courses, and health (see pages 
13 and 14). 

— Satisfaction of any additional requirements for admission (see 
page 13). 

— Satisfaction of the University requirement of competence in En- 
glish (see next section). 

— Adequate financial resources (see Financial Verification Require- 

< rtion). 

ENGLISH COMPETENCE REQUIREMENT 

Evidence of English proficiency is required of students who request 

i'ration for admission This evidence is provided by a s.itisl.K

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is adminis- 
tered several times each year at many locations throughout the world . 
To make arrangements to take the test, write directly to the TOEFL 
Application Office, P.O. Box 61 55, Princeton, NJ 08541 -61 55, U.S.A., or 
contact the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate, or U.S. Information 
Service office. Applicants who have already taken the test should 
request that the TOEFL office send their scores to the Office of 
Admissions and Records. For admission purposes, TOEFL scores are 
valid for only two years prior to the proposed term of entry. If the 
TOEFL score is acceptable but indicates the need for further English 
study, a placement test will be required upon arrival at the University. 
On the basis of the placement test scores, students may be required to 
enroll in noncredit English courses and to take reduced academic 
loads. 

In cases in which TOEFL testing dates are not available prior to the 
desired term of entry, the University will arrange for substitution of 
the Michigan English Language Assessment Battery (MELAB) test 
given by the English Language Institute Testing and Certification 
Division at the University of Michigan. Complete instructions to 
arrange for the MELAB examination will be provided by the Office of 
Admissions and Records to each applicant for whom the test is 
required. Final admission status is determined after the test results 
have been received. 

The current minimum cutoff scores are 550 on the TOEFL and 83 
on the MELAB. The English requirement for graduation is explained 
on page 38. 

FINANCIAL VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT 

In order to qualify for a Certificate of Visa Eligibility (Form 1-20 or IAP- 
66), a foreign (international) applicant must submit complete and 
accurate information regarding his or her source of financial support. 
This information is in compliance with regulations of the U.S. Immi- 
gration and Naturalization Service. Current information and certifica- 
tion also are required of foreign applicants transferring from institu- 
tions within the United States. Financial resources must be docu- 
mented for the entire length of time required to earn a degree. 
Expenses for the 1994-95 academic year were estimated at $18,164, 
excluding summer session tuition and fees. This figure is subject to 
increase without notice and is presented here for planning purposes. 
Current estimated expenses may be obtained by writing to the Office 
of Admissions and Records. 

Prospective students who cannot document the availability of 
sufficient resources will be denied admission. 

University financial aid funds are extremely limited and are avail- 
able only to participants in specific exchange programs. Individual 
requests for financial aid cannot be considered.

by computer. Students who register for courses agree to pay tuition 
and fees to the University according to the payment policies and 
schedules adopted by the Board of Trustees. If a student wishes to 
cancel registration, and thus avoid payment of tuition and fee charges, 
the student must do so by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction.

curriculum of enrollment; classification as resident or nonresident of 
Illinois; and credit range as determined by the total number of semes- 
ter hours or graduate units for which the student is registered. 

Undergraduate credit is counted in semester hours. Credit for 
graduate work is counted in units. For fee assessment purposes, 1 unit 
equals 4 semester hours. A full-time undergraduate student is one 
who is registered for 12 or more semester hours of credit. 

The Service Fee supports operation of certain campus facilities 
such as the Illini Union, Turner Student Services Building, Assembly 
1 1, ill, and the Intramural Physical Education Building. The Health

are due and payable in full by the deadline indicated on the Registra- 
tion Statement of Charges and Aid. The privilege of paying these 
charges by installment may be granted by the Office of Student 
Accounts and Cashiering (see next section). Students who do not 
make full or first installment payment by the scheduled due date 
shown on the statement will be assessed a $25 (amount subject to 
change) charge for late registration payment, which will be billed to 
their student accounts. 

A delinquent service charge of 1.5 percent per month, or $2 per 
month, whichever is greater, is added to delinquent student accounts. 
The delinquent service charge is applied to all items charged to the 
student account and for which payment is delinquent. 



Student Costs 



INSTALLMENT PLAN FOR PAYING TUITION, FEES, AND 
HOUSING CHARGES 

Students enrolled on campus may pay tuition and fees, single-student 
residence hall charges, and flight instruction tees on an installment 
plan. Thi> plan is not available to students registered in extramural, 
correspondence, and four-week summer term courses, or to students 
for whom thi> privilege has been denied 

Under the installment plan, semester charges are collected in three 
installments The first is payable during the first ten days of instruc- 
tion, and the remaining ones are payable in each of the two following 
months. Approximately one-half of the summer eight-week term 
charges must be paid during the first seven days of instruction with 
the remainder due during the following month. There is a finance 
charge of 1 percent of the total amount deferred, or $2, whichever is 
greater, when charges are paid in installments (amount subject to 
change). 

Students who pay their accounts on the installment plan and later 
withdraw from the University, or reduce their registration to a lower 
credit range after the established refund deadline date, are liable for 
the full amount of tuition and fees assessed. 

Installment payments are delinquent on the first day of the month 
after the date that payment is due. A delinquent service charge of 1.5 
percent per month, or $2 per month, whichever is greater, is added to 
delinquent accounts (amount subject to change). The delinquent 
sen-ice charge is applied to all items charged to the student account 
and for which payment is delinquent. 

Students who are in debt to the University at the end of any 
academic term may not be permitted to register in the University 
again. They are not entitled to receive diplomas or official statements 
or transcripts of credits until either the indebtedness has been paid or 
suitable arrangements for payment have been made, unless either 
there is a pending bankruptcy petition of the student seeking a 
discharge of all such indebtedness or all such indebtedness has been 
discharged. 

REFUNDS 



CANCELLATION OF REGISTRATION 

Individuals who have placed courses on their record prior to the 
beginning of the term and later decide not to attend the University 
may cancel their registration by 5:00 p.m. of the first day of instruction 
for the term and avoid all tuition and fee charges. Individuals who are 
ineligible to continue in the University for actions initiated by the 
University based on academic, disciplinary, or medical reasons before 
5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction for the term have their 
registrations become void and are not entitled to student privileges. 

If a written request to cancel registration is received in the Office 
of Admissions and Records by 5:00 p.m. on the first day of instruction, 
a student's registration agreement will be cancelled and tuition and 
fees will not be charged. 

Students may not cancel their registration once they have used fee- 
supported services. If they leave the University, they must officially 
withdraw from the University 

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE UNIVERSITY 

Students who have been charged tuition and /or fees and later with- 
draw from the University prior to the completion of 60 percent of the 
term receive a refund on a pro rata basis. Assessed tuition, the service 
fee, the general fee, and the transportation fee are refunded on a pro 
rata basis less 5 percent of the assessed amount or $100, whichever is 
less. The health insurance and health services fees are nonrefundable. 
Students continue to be covered by health insurance and are eligible 
to receive health services (if these fees were paid) until the first day of 
instruction for the following term. 

Before a refund is made to a student, the University must make a 
refund to appropriate financial aid programs providing assistance to 
the student. A student indebted to the University at the time of 
withdrawal will have the amount owed deducted from the amount of 
any refund available. 

Students permitted to pay tuition and fees on the installment plan, 
or who make no payment at all, and then withdraw from the Univer- 
sity, are liable for the full amount of tuition and fees originally 
assessed less applicable refunds. 

Special refund policies apply to those who withdraw to enter 
either active duty in the armed forces or other approved national 
defense service. 



In case of extenuating circumstances, such as medically docu- 
mented serious illness or injury, exception to these refund periods 
may be made by the director of the Office of Admissions and Records. 
The petition form to request a refund is available at Window 25, 100 
Henry Administration Building. 

REDUCTION OF PROGRAM 

Students who paid tuition and /or fees and later reduce their registra- 
tion to a lower credit range, as indicated on page 22, receive full refund 
of the difference in tuition and fees specified for the ranges if the 
change is made during the periods listed below. Thereafter, no refund 
is allowed. 

• In a semester, twelve-week term, or eleven-week summer law 
program, full refund, except for the nonrefundable charge, during 
the first ten days of instruction; no refund thereafter; 

• In an eight-week summer term, full refund, except for the nonre- 
fundable charge, during the first seven days of instruction; no 
refund thereafter; and 

• For University terms of different lengths, refund periods are deter- 
mined proportionately in accordance with the above principles. 

EXEMPTIONS AND WAIVERS OF TUITION AND FEES' 

Appearing below are the waivers and exemptions available to stu- 
dents and the conditions under which they are granted. 

Recipients of waivers have had the amount for the service actually 
assessed and then waived by University policy. Such recipients are 
therefore eligible to receive the benefits of the service provided by the 
charge. 

An exemption carries no original charge, so recipients are not 
eligible to receive the benefits of the services provided by the charge. 
Students exempt from any particular charge may make individual 
arrangements with the service provider; such arrangements are sub- 
ject to the policies of the individual provider. 

Unless otherwise exempted by Board of Trustees authorization, 
the payment of tuition and fees is required of academic employees of 
the University or allied agencies under appointment for less than 25 
percent of full-time service, and of staff employees under appoint- 
ment for less than 50 percent of full-time service. 

For tuition and fees assessment purposes, an appointment must be 
to an established position for a specific amount of time and a salary 
commensurate with the percentage of time required, and it must 
require service for not less than three-fourths of the academic term. 
Note: A term is defined as running from the first day of class through 
the last day of final examinations. Three-fourths of a term is defined 
as ninety-one calendar days in a semester and forty-one calendar days 
during the eight-week summer term. Tuition and fees privileges do 
not apply to students employed on an hourly basis in either an 
academic or staff capacity, or to persons on leave without pay. 



1 . For the purpose of this section, the four employment categories at this campus are 

defined as follows: 

Faculty. The faculty includes ( 1 ) those in the professorial ranks (i.e., professor, associate 

professor, assistant professor); (2) instructors and lecturers; and (3) teaching, research, 

and clinical associates. Various prefixes may be used in conjunction with these ranks, 

such as adjunct, clinical, visiting, or research. 

Academic Professional (Academic): Academic professionals are those employees whose 

positions have been designated by the president and the chancellor as meeting 

specialized administrative, professional, or technical needs. Academic professional 

employees receive an academic contract issued by the Board of Trustees for a term 

appointment. They are accorded the rights and privileges pertaining to other academic 

personnel except those that apply specifically to academic employees with faculty 

rank, such as eligibility for tenure. 

Graduate Student Assistant: Graduates student assistants include teaching, research, 

and clinical assistants. 

Staff: Staff employees are those members of the University work force subject to the 

rules of the State Universities Civil Service System. 

University employees appointed to established civil service posi- 
tions whose rates of pay are determined by negotiation, prevailing 
rates, and union affiliation are not considered as paid on an hourly 
basis and are entitled to the same tuition and fees privileges accorded 
to other staff members under the regulations. 

A student who resigns an appointment, or whose appointment is 
cancelled before rendering service for at least three-fourths of the 
term, becomes subject to the full amount of the appropriate tuition and 
fees for that term unless the student withdraws from University 
classes at the same time or before the appointment becomes void, or

Program or other self-supporting programs. 

APPLICATION FEE 

Applicants for admission must submit a $30 ($40 for international 
applieantsi application fee (amount subject to change) to help defray 
processing costs. The fee is nonrefundable to applicants approved for 
admission and to denied applicants who submit complete or partial 
applications prior to the date all admission spaces are filled in the 
college and curriculum of their choice. Application fees will be re- 
turned to persons applying for admission to curricula that were closed 
to further admission or to programs not being offered. 
Exempt from payment of the application fee are: 

— Faculty and academic professional employees. 

— University of Illinois faculty, academic, and staff retirees. 

— Permanent staff employees of the University and other institutions 
and agencies under the University Civil Service System who have 
been assigned to established permanent and continuous staff

hardship is a family income at or below the low standard family 
budget of the Bureau of Labor Statistics or the receipt of a testing 
waiver from the American College Testing Program of the College 
Entrance Examination Board. Applicants currently attending an- 
other collegiate institution may provide evidence of the financial 
package received at the institution. 

— Applicants under approved foreign exchange programs in which 
the University participates, such as the Latin American Scholar- 
ship Program of American Universities and the African Scholar- 
ship Program of American Universities, and foreign students 
participating in approved exchange programs in which the waiver 
of fees is reciprocal. 

— Intercampus transfers at the same level: undergraduate to under- 
graduate, or graduate to graduate. 

— Applicants requesting a change in admission consideration from 
one campus of the University of Illinois to another for the same 
level and term. This would include applicants denied admission on 
one campus as well as applicants w-ishing to cancel admission or 
admission consideration on one campus for similar consideration 
on another campus. Students applying simultaneously to two 
campuses must pay the application fee at each campus. Under- 
graduate students applying for admission to a professional or 
graduate college on either of the two campuses must pay the 
application fee.

on Institutional Cooperation (CIO Program by taking courses at 
the University of Illinois.

ceding term and who plan to return to their primary campuses the 
following term.

of practice teachers, who receive assignment of students meeting 
the clinical experience requirement in teacher education, or who 
cooperate in research projects related to teacher education, cooper- 
ating librarians, school-nurse teachers, social welfare field supervi- 
sors, recreation field supervisors, health-education field supervi- 
sors, speech pathology supervisors, developmental child care field

WAIVER OF TUITION 

Tuition is waived for: 

— All faculty and academic professional employees (excluding gradu- 
ate assistants) of the University on appointment for at least 25 
percent of full-time service, provided the appointments require 
service for not less than three-fourths of a term. This waiver also 
applies to employees of certain specifically identified related agen- 
cies whose positions are considered equivalent to academic posi- 
tions of the University. 

— Graduate teaching and research assistants of the University on 
appointment for at least 25 percent but not more than 67 percent of 
full-time service. Their appointments must require service for not 
less than three-fourths of the term. Those on appointment for 68 
percent or more of full-time service pay tuition at the in-state rate 
and are eligible for waiver of the Service Fee only. Caution: Assis- 
tantship appointments are cumulative. For example, if a person 
holds two appointments, a 25-percent and a 50-percent assistant- 
ship appointment, he or she is ineligible for a tuition waiver. 

— Students holding appointments — as employees, graduate assis- 
tants, or fellows — to the close of the final term of an academic year, 
for whom tuition and/or the Service Fee have been provided 
through waiver, are entitled to a waiver of the same kinds of tuition 
and fees for the summer session or summer term immediately 
following, provided they hold no appointments during that sum- 
mer session or term. Students holding summer session or summer 
term appointments as fellows or as employees are subject to such 
tuition and fees as would be assessed in accordance with the 
principles expressed above. 

— Staff employees of the University, of any other institutions and 
agencies under the University Civil Service System, and of certain 
specifically identified related agencies in status appointments or in 
appointments designed to qualify for status in an established class 
(e.g., trainee, intern) for at least 50 percent of full-time services who 
register in regular University courses not to exceed: 

• Six credit hours or two courses in a semester or quarter if on full- 
time appointment, 

• Four credit hours if on a 75- to 99-percent time appointment, or 

• Three credit hours if on a 50- to 74-percent time appointment, 
provided they (1) meet conditions and eligibility for admission as 
prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records, (2) are not 
students as defined in Civil Service Rule 7.7c, and (3) have approval 
by their employing departments of enrollment and of a makeup 
schedule to cover any time in course attendance during their 
regular work schedules. The waiver of tuition also applies to any 
additional hours of registration by staff employees that keep them 
within the same fee assessment credit range. Staff employees 
whose total registration is in a higher range than that authorized by 
their tuition waiver pay only the difference between the waiver 
authorization and the higher range in which their total registration 
places them. 

— Staff employees in status, learner, trainee, apprentice, or provi- 
sional appointments may enroll without payment of tuition in 
regular courses directly related to their University employment 
not to exceed 10 credit hours per semester provided they have 
made application and received prior approval for enrollment as 
required by procedures issued by the director of Staff Human 
Resources and set forth in Policy and Rules — Staff.

welfare field supervisors, developmental child care field supervi- 
sors, recreation field supervisors, health-education field supervi- 
sors, speech pathology supervisors, educational psychology su- 
pervisors, continuing education supervisors, industrial relations

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE FEE 

Students totally exempt from payment of the Student Health Insur- 
ance Fee and therefore not eligible for these benefits and services are: 



— Persons registered for doctoral thesis research in absentia. 

— Persons registered in off-campus courses and study-abroad courses 
for zero credit. (If registered for more than zero credit, they are 
required to pay this fee.) 

— University employees registered at the request of their depart- 
ments in zero-credit courses especially established to improve 
their work. 

— Employees who are registered as students but who are eligible for 
and participate in the mandatory State of Illinois Employees Insur- 
ance Program. 

— Employees of certain specifically identified related agencies who 
are eligible automatically to receive hospital-medical coverage as 
an employment benefit at the cost of the employing agency. 

— Students presenting petitions and evidence of approved equiva- 
lent medical insurance coverage (See Student Health Insurance.) 

— Illinois Teacher of the Year recipients. 

— CIC Visiting Scholars and concurrent University of Illinois 
registrants. 

STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE 

The University Board of Trustees requires all students to be covered 
by health insurance through either a program provided by the Univer- 
sity or one determined to be equivalent to that offered by the 
University. 

The Student Insurance Office is permanently located at 807 South 
Wright Street, Fourth Floor, Champaign. For the semester periods 
during which on-campus registration is held, the insurance office is 
located in the Armory. When the Post-Registration Service Center is 
open, an insurance station is operated in the Illini Union for the first 
(fall) and second (spring) semesters, and in the Henry Administration 
Building for the summer session. During the times either the Armory 
or the Service Center station is open, all exemptions, reinstatements, 
and applications for coverage must be made at that location. Students 
should consult the current Timetable for the dates and times of on- 
campus registration and operation of the post-registration service 
activities. 

Students registered in University classes for residence work are 
assessed a fee each registration to cover the cost of the program. A 
student presenting evidence of equivalent medical insurance cover- 
age (a copy of the insurance policy or a schedule of benefits) may be 
exempted from payment of this fee upon approval of a petition 
submitted IN PERSON at one of the Insurance Office locations by no 
later than the final date established each term for a refund of tuition 
and fees. A signed waiver and assumption of responsibility is also 
required. An exemption will continue in effect until such time as the 
student requests reinstatement to the plan or does not respond to a 
periodic request to confirm that he/she continues to be covered by 
another health plan. Reinstatement may also be requested at any other 
time up to the last day of coverage for a semester or term. Reinstate- 
ment is guaranteed if application is within thirty-one days of the

such items must be resubmitted by the student in person within the 
stated deadline for the term in question. 

Financial Aid 

Financial aid programs are designed to provide assistance to students 
who otherwise would not be able to pursue a postsecondary educa- 
tion. A basic principle of most aid programs is that parents and 
students pay for an education according to their capabilities. Student 
financial aid programs, therefore, are designed to supplement — not 
replace — a family's contribution. 

Even with relatively low tuition and fee charges, the cost of a 
college education still can be a financial burden for many families. 
(Estimated expenses for an undergraduate student at the University 
appear in Table 3 on page 22.) 

No student, however, should fail to apply for admission because 
his or her family feels unable to pay the full cost of a college education. 
The Office of Student Financial Aid at the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign (Fourth Floor, Turner Student Services Building, 
610 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820) administers several finan- 
cial aid programs. If the family's resources are determined to be 
insufficient to meet necessary educational expenses, financial aid in 
the form of loans, employment, grants, and/or scholarships usually 
can be made available. 

The major sources of aid are federal and state government pro- 
grams, as well as funds administered by the University. There also are 
funds for which a student applies directly to an awarding agency. 

Personnel in the Office of Student Financial Aid are available to 
those needing information on financial assistance. Office hours are 
from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, except on all- 
campus holidays; call (217) 333-0100. 

THE APPLICATION PROCESS 

Follow the steps below to apply for federal, state, and University aid. 

NOTE: Students in veterinary medicine who do not have a bachelor's degree should 
follow these steps prescribed for undergraduate students. 

— Complete a need-analysis document. The Free Application for 
Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is used to determine eligibility for 
federal, state, and institutional assistance. 

— Illinois residents apply for an Illinois Student Assistance Commis- 
sion (ISAC) Monetary Award Program grant (see below) by releas- 
ing information to ISAC and the University. 

— All applicants receive a Student Aid Report that indicates whether 
they are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant (see below). All copies of 
this report should be submitted to the Office of Student Financial 
Aid. 

TRANSFER AND READMITTED STUDENTS 

In addition to completing a need-analysis document, transfer stu- 
dents and students who have been readmitted to the University who 
wish to apply for financial aid must provide financial aid transcripts 
for all institutions they have attended. Even students who have not 
received aid previously must provide a financial aid transcript before 
being considered for future assistance. Transcript forms can be ob- 
tained from the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

HOW TO OBTAIN NEED-ANALYSIS DOCUMENTS 

Need-analysis documents areavailable from high school and commu- 
nity college counselors. Additional financial aid information specific 
to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and an optional 
Supplemental Scholarship Information Form are in application pack- 
tlable from the Of rice of Student Financial Aid. Students may 
call the off i( eat (217) 333-0100 and request documents via a recorded 
.age.

SOURCES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE 



Several types of financial aid are available. Since the University's 
funds are limited, students also should seek assistance provided by 
national, state, and local organizations. 

SCHOLARSHIPS 

Most scholarships require high scholastic achievement, but financial 
need is an additional criterion. Recipients of need-based scholarships 
are determined from information supplied on the FAFSA and the 
optional Supplemental Scholarship Information Form. 

The Merit Recognition Scholarship (MRS) administered by the 
Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) is awarded solely on 
the basis of scholastic achievement. The $1,000 award is for entering 
freshmen who graduated in the top 5 percent of an Illinois high school 
class. Recipients must attend an Illinois postsecondary institution. 
The program is dependent upon annual funding by the state. In 1994- 
95, funding was sufficient for only the top 2 percent of graduates to 
receive awards. Potential recipients are notified by the Illinois Student 
Assistance Commission. 

The Paul Douglas Scholarship, another program not based on need 
and administered by the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, is 
for students in teacher education curricula. While amounts vary, a 
typical award for students attending the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign is $5,000. Recipients must have graduated in the 
top 10 percent of their high school classes. 

In addition to scholarships administered by the Office of Student 
Financial Aid and the ISAC, numerous agencies, organizations, and 
businesses provide funds to students in specific curricula. These 
outside agencies, organizations, and businesses often contact indi- 
vidual departments or units for nominations of potentially eligible 
recipients. For further information, students may wish to contact the 
departments in which they are enrolled or have been accepted for 
admission. 

FEDERAL AND STATE GRANT PROGRAMS 
FEDERAL PELL GRANT 

A major source of financial assistance for undergraduate students is 
the federally funded Pell Grant program. For academic year 1994-95, 
awards ranged from $200 to $2,300. 

As indicated in The Application Process (see previous section), 
undergraduate aid applicants should submit all parts of their Pell 
Grant Student Aid Reports to complete their aid application files. 
While Pell Grant eligibility does not determine eligibility for other 
financial aid, students must demonstrate that they have applied for 
this federal program before receiving assistance from the University's 
more limited resources. 

ILLINOIS STUDENT ASSISTANCE COMMISSION (ISAC) MONETARY 
AWARD PROGRAM (MAP) 

The Illinois Student Assistance Commission Monetary Award Pro- 
gram (MAP) is another major source of grant assistance to under- 
graduate Illinois residents attending colleges and universities in the 
state. Ranging from $400 to $3,800 (1994-95), this award is granted on 
the basis of demonstrated financial need and applied toward tuition 
and fees. 



NOTE: The Illinois Student Ass 
Program that recognizes scholas 
named a State Scholar to be elif

sion also administers a State Scholar 
It is not necessary for a student to be 
tary award, nor does receiving such 
award. 



GRANTS AWARDED BY THE OFFICE OF STUDENT FINANCIAL 
AID 

Awards from other federal and state grant programs are made by the 
Office of Student Financial Aid. Students do not apply spec ifically lor 
these grants; anyone filing a FAFSA is considered. (See The Applica- 
tion Process.) 

The Federal Supplemental Educational ( opportunity Grant is a grant 
program distinct from the Federal Pell Grant (above). The federal 
government annually provides postsecondary institutions with allo- 
cations from which awards are made. At UIUC during 1994-95, 
awards ranged from $200 to $2/400.

paign initiated the SEAL program by referendum in 1970 and have 
reaffirmed it every tour years since. STSM grants are awarded in 
accordance with rules prescribed by the Illinois Student Assistance 
Commission During academic year 1994-95, awards ranged from 
$100to$l # 000 

EMPLOYMENT: A FORM OF SELF-HELP FINANCIAL AID 

The Office ot Student Financial Aid offers employment assistance to 
any I niversity student seeking part-time work. Office hours are 9:00 
a m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except on all-campus 
holidays. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign employs more 
than \0,000 part-time student workers in offices, libraries, laborato- 
ries tarms, and food service units; each year these student employees 
earn more than S9 million. In addition, many students work in the 
communitv. 

Hourly wages for student workers vary according to the type of 
work and responsibilities involved, but equal at least the minimum 
wage Most jobs require from ten to fifteen hours of work per week. 
Earnings can approximate 20 percent of a student's college expenses. 

Many students find food service work or temporary odd jobs 
before or after regular University hours. By arranging class schedules 
to have consecutive hours free each day for working, students may 
improve their employment opportunities. Job opportunities requir- 
ing advanced skills or knowledge offer excellent part-time, career- 
related experience to University students. 

FEDERAL WORK-STUDY 

The University of Illinois participates in Federal Work-Study, a finan- 
cial aid program that helps colleges and universities provide addi- 
tional jobs for students. To participate in the program, a student must 
have applied for need-based aid and have a Work-Study award as part 
of a financial aid package from the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

A Work-Study award recipient must check with the Office of 
Student Financial Aid to obtain assistance in job placement. This 
should be done at the beginning of the academic term. 

STUDENT LOANS: ANOTHER FORM OF SELF-HELP 
ASSISTANCE 



LOW-INTEREST LOANS AWARDED BY THE UNIVERSITY 

The Office of Student Financial Aid offers loans to students who 
demonstrate financial need. All on-time applicants for University aid 
are considered for low-interest loans from the University. The Office 
of Student Financial Aid, acting for the University of Illinois as lender, 
determines who is eligible for, and the amount of, a University long- 
term loan. 

These loans normally carry an interest rate of 5 percent, and 
repayment is deferred until six months after the borrower ceases to be 
at least a half-time student. 

The University of Illinois also awards the Federal Perkins Loan to 
students. These loans carry a 5 percent interest rate, and repayment is 
deferred until either six or nine months after the borrower ceases to be 
a full-time student. Federal Health Professions Student Loans, avail- 
able to veterinary medicine students, carry a 5 percent interest rate 
with repayment beginning twelve months after the borrower leaves 
school. 

NEW FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN PROGRAMS 

For those who attend college at least half time, the federal government 
has supported guaranteed long-term loan programs which offer 
several borrowing advantages to students and their families. Loans 
are available to all students, although programs differ slightly for 
those who demonstrate financial need, and available amounts are 
determined by whether a student is dependent or independent. 

Beginning with academic year 1994-95, the University of Illinois 
has participated in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan program. 
(Previous guaranteed loans were titled Stafford Loans under the 
Federal Family Education Loan [FFEL] program.) Under the Direct 
Loan program, schools disburse amounts directly to students through 
funds received from the federal government. Previously, students 
borrowed funds from commercial lenders. 

Subsidized Direct Loans are available to students demonstrating 
financial need. The interest subsidy is paid by the federal government 
while the student borrower is in school, and payments are deferred 



until six months after the borrower ceases to be enrolled at least half 
time. At the freshman level, a student may borrow up to $2,625; at the 
sophomore level, $3,500; at the junior and senior levels, $5,500. The 
aggregate maximum that can be borrowed for undergraduate study is 
$23,000. The interest rate varies, but the maximum is 8.25 percent. 

Parents of dependent students can borrow through the Federal 
Direct PLUS Loan program. For each dependent student, each year 
parents may borrow up to educational costs, minus the amount of 
other aid the student receives. Payments begin while the student is 
still in school. The interest rate varies, but the maximum is 9 percent. 

The Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program is available to 
independent undergraduate and graduate students. While payments 
are deferred until a student borrower leaves school permanently and 
a relatively attractive interest rate (maximum 8.25 percent) is charged, 
interest accrues while the borrower is in school. Independent under- 
graduates may borrow up to the following annual amounts according 
to class level: freshman, $6,625; sophomore, $7,500; junior and senior, 
$10,500 each acdemic year. Dependent students whose need is not met 
by other resources may borrow up to the same maximum amounts 
(including subsidized loans) available to independent students. 

Another advantage of the Direct Loan program is that it provides 
the student borrower with several repayment options including in- 
come-contingent plans and graduated repayments. For further infor- 
mation concerning Federal Direct Student Loans, contact the Univer- 
sity of Illinois Office of Student Financial Aid. 

NOTE: As this publication was being produced, Congress was considering proposals 
which would revise the Direct Loan program. One or more provisions of federal loan 
programs may have been changed. 

SPECIALIZED AID PROGRAMS 

Although most financial aid award guidelines for Urbana-Cham- 
paign students are determined by the Office of Student Financial Aid, 
some aid programs are administered by groups or agencies to which 
the student applies directly (besides the two major grant programs 
described earlier: Federal Pell Grant and Illinois Student Assistance 
Commission Monetary Award). 

PROGRAMS FOR VETERANS 

ILLINOIS VETERANS GRANTS 

An Illinois statute provides a grant for each Illinois resident who is a 
veteran and who has served honorably on active duty in the armed 
forces of the United States, provided that certain eligibility require- 
ments are met. The grant covers the cost of resident tuition and most 
fees. The veteran must have been honorably discharged. 

Members currently serving in the armed forces also are entitled to 
an Illinois Veterans Grant provided they have served at least one year 
and would be qualified for the grant if discharged. 

Contact the Illinois Student Assistance Commission for an appli- 
cation and information on additional requirements. 

OTHER VETERANS' EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS 

Students seeking information regarding veterans' educational ben- 
efits should contact the Veterans Affairs staff in the Office of Student 
Financial Aid. 

OTHER SPECIALIZED SCHOLARSHIP AND GRANT PROGRAMS 

ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CHILDREN AND FAMILY SERVICES 
ASSISTANCE 

The department will cover the cost of resident tuition and fees for four 
years and will provide maintenance and payment of school expenses 
to supplement the student's earnings and other resources. 

Recipients must be under the guardianship of the Illinois Depart- 
ment of Children and Family Services. For an application and addi- 
tional information, contact a local caseworker or the Illinois Depart- 
ment of Children and Family Services, One North Old State Capitol 
Plaza, Springfield, IL 62706, or 100 West Randolph Street, 6th Floor, 
Chicago, IL 60601. 

ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF REHABILITATION SERVICES 

This assistance varies according to individual needs and program 
requirements. A recipient must have a disability that is a handicap to 
employment. To apply, Illinois residents should contact the State of 
Illinois Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, 1207 South Oak 
Street, Room 102, Champaign, IL 61820. Students from other states 
should contact their state Department of Rehabilitation Services.

should borrow as little as is necessary for as short a period of time as 
possible. A service fee of $3 is charged. The interest charge on overdue 
loans is 18 percent per year on the unpaid balance. 

Students who are U.S. citizens or are permanent residents should 
apply in person to the Office of Student Financial Aid, Fourth Floor,

Precollege Programs 



PROGRAMS FOR FRESHMEN 



The University offers fall semester freshmen the opportunity to com- 
plete required testing, to become acquainted with the campus, and to 
receive academic advising and complete advance enrollment during 
a summer two-day period prior to the beginning of the fall semester. 
These opportunities are explained fully in the booklet Get Ready for 
Illinois, which is sent to all accepted applicants. 

Freshmen entering in the fall semester who do not participate in 
the placement testing and summer orientation/advance enrollment 
programs must complete their required testing, academic advising, 
and class scheduling during the week immediately preceding the start 
of classes. Thus, participation in the precollege sessions is strongly 
urged to ensure a smooth transition to the University environment. 

Precollege programs are not available for freshmen entering the 
University during the spring semester; they must complete required 
testing, academic advising, and registration during the week immedi- 
ately preceding the start of classes. 

PLACEMENT TESTING 

Placement tests are designed to help determine the levels at which 
students are best prepared to begin University study in particular 
subject areas. Scores of these tests are used for initial placement 
purposes only and are not recorded on student official academic 
records. The requirements for placement testing vary by college and 
curriculum, and the Get Ready for Illinois booklet provides full details 
on the required and optional tests. 

During March, April, and May, beginning freshmen who have 
been admitted to the fall semester come to either the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus or the University Center of the University of Illinois at 
Chicago campus to participate in a one-day program of required 
testing. The tests taken during this day are the Rhetoric Essay Test, and 
placement tests in mathematics, chemistry, and foreign languages. 
These tests must be taken by admitted students if they had these 
subjects in high school, but have not received college credit for them, 
and intend to pursue these subjects at the University either as required 
or elective courses. 

Students who live outside of Illinois and more than 250 miles from 
Champaign-Urbana have the option of completing placement testing 
on the first day of the orientation /advance enrollment program. 

An admitted freshman who fails to complete all required testing 
by the conclusion of the summer program will be assessed a $25 late 
fee (amount subject to change) to take the tests immediately preceding 
the start of classes if (1 ) the freshman is a resident of Illinois and (2) the 
Notice of Admission to the University is dated prior to May 1. 



Special Programs 



ACADEMIC ADVISING AND ORIENTATION/ADVANCE 
ENROLLMENT 

A. student who has completed the testing required by his or her college 
may participate in the two-day orientation/advance enrollment pro- 
gram conducted at the Urbana-Champaign campus during fune and 
lulv During that period, the student has an opportunity to learn about 
the expectations ol professors and the level of academic standards at 
the University, as well as the chance to interact with other entering 
student- and currently enrolled University students. Additionally 
the new student is able to receive his or her student identification card 
and to become acquainted with the physical arrangement of the 
campus, housing facilities, and main other facets of campus life. It 
interested, the student also has the opportunity to audition for band 
and choral organizations. 

The student's stay culminates in a meeting with an academic 
adviser who provides information about academic opportunities and 
requirements and assists the student in selecting a schedule of courses 
for the fall semester; the course requests of beginning freshmen who 
participate in the summer program receive priority in the scheduling 
of classes tor the tall semester. Students participating in the program 
receive their fall class schedules in early August and then may register 
either by mail or during on-campus registration. 

Since the placement test results are used by the colleges and 
academic departments concerned to evaluate student achievement 
levels and to assist in arranging class schedules, freshmen must 
complete all required testing before they can participate in summer 
orientation /advance enrollment. 

A program charge includes one night's accommodations, three 
meals, and program events. The program charge is waived for any 
student who received an admission application fee waiver based on 
extreme financial hardship. 

PROGRAMS FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS 

New transfer students have the opportunity to advance enroll for the 
fall semester during a special one-day program held during the 
summer. At that time the student meets with an academic adviser to 
discuss the transfer of credit for all previous college course work, to 
learn the student's status in terms of progress toward a degree from 
the University, and to select classes for the fall. The student also has the 
opportunity to meet in a small group with currently enrolled Univer- 
sity students, to interact with other entering students, and to receive 
his or her student identification card. Each transfer student receives 
details of the advance enrollment program in the Get Ready for Illinois 
booklet mailed with the Notice of Admission. 

PROGRAM FOR PARENTS 

Parents are cordially invited and encouraged to accompany their sons 
and daughters to the campus for the summer program and to partici- 
pate in a Parent Orientation Program. Through a variety of informa- 
tion sessions, parents will have the opportunity to meet and speak 
with campus administrators, faculty, students, and members of the 
Mothers and Dads Associations. A program charge includes one 
night's accommodations, three meals, and program events. Parents 
likewise may take advantage of the opportunity to tour the campus.

Special Programs 



Because of the comprehensive nature of the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign, arrangements for talented and highly motivated 
students differ among the various colleges and departments. Gener- 
ally speaking, talented and highly motivated students are able to enter 
special courses or special sections of courses as freshmen and sopho- 
mores and are encouraged as juniors and seniors to participate in 
special programs for majors offered by the many departments. For 



details of these arrangements, see the descriptions in the college 
sections of this catalog. 

Policies and procedures regarding placement and proficiency 
examinations, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), and 
the Advanced Placement Program are published in the current edition 
of Opportunities for Advanced Credit, a brochure available at college 
offices or by writing to the Office of Admissions and Records, Univer- 
sity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 10 Henry Administration Build- 
ing, 506 South Wright Street, Urbana, IL 61801, (217) 333-0302. 

ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM 

The Advanced Placement Program, administered by the College 
Entrance Examination Board, is designed for high school students 
who are about to enter college and wish to demonstrate their readiness 
for courses more advanced than those usually studied in the freshman 
year. Advanced classes are offered in many high schools in one or 
more of the following subjects: American and comparative govern- 
ment and politics, art history, art studio, computer science, English 
languageand composition, English literature and composition, French 
language, French literature, German language, Latin, Spanish lan- 
guage, Spanish literature, biology, chemistry, mathematics (calculus), 
micro- and macroeconomics, physics, psychology, music literature, 
music theory, and social studies (American history and European 
history). A national examination in each subject, administered in May 
by the Educational Testing Service, is designed to measure the compe- 
tence of students in terms of the point at which college study in that 
subject should begin. The University encourages high schools and 
their outstanding students to participate in this program. 

Examinations are prepared and graded by national committees of 
high school and college teachers. They are graded on the following 
scale: 5, high honors; 4, honors; 3, creditable; 2, pass; and 1, fail. Grade 
reports are sent to the universities each student specifies at the time of 
the examination. Each department within the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign has the option of granting, or not granting, col- 
lege credit and advanced placement on the basis of the board's grade. 

Transfer students should refer to the section on Acceptance of 
Nontraditional Transfer Credit on page 16 for the policy on accepting 
credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program. 

Specific credit recommendations for beginning freshmen at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus are listed below. Assignment of credit 
for specific courses is dependent upon policies established by the 
individual departments and colleges and is subject to change upon 
annual review.

INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE EXAMINATIONS 

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Program, sponsored by a Swiss 
foundation, offers a curriculum covering either the last two years of 
secondary education or the twelfth and thirteenth grades in a thirteen- 
grade system. Successful completion of the program is based on the 
completion of course work and passage of internationally prepared 
examinations. The examinations are written at two levels of study: 
High Level, administered after a minimum of 240 hours of teaching 
time in a subject; and Subsidiary Level, administered after a minimum 
of 160 hours of teaching time in a subject. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will award profi- 
ciency credit to new, continuing, and transfer students on the basis of 
scores from several International Baccalaureate examinations: anthro- 
pology, biology, chemistry, classics (Latin and Greek), economics, 
French, German, history, and philosophy. University departments 
establish policies for a warding proficiency credit and advanced place- 
ment for each score on the IB scale of 1 to 7. Those wishing to have such 
examination scores evaluated should request that official score tran- 
scripts be sent to the Division of Measurement and Evaluation, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, c/o 
182 Armory Building, 505 East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 
61820. 

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may accept, for 
transfer purposes, IB credit awarded by another institution if the 
transfer student meets two requirements: (1) the student must have 
earned at least 12 semester hours of graded college-level classroom 
credit at that same institution or campus, and (2) the student must 
have earned classroom credit for a more advanced course in the same 
subject area at that same institution. The advanced course must be 
fully acceptable under University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
transfer credit policies. Transfer students who have not met these 
requirements may request that official copies of their scores be sent to 
the Division of Measurement and Evaluation. Such scores will be 
evaluated using the same standards applied to the scores of continu- 
ing students at the University. 

The specific credit and placement policies for International Bacca- 
laureate eliminations recognized by this campus are given below. 
I'h is information is subject to change upon annual review by each 
department concerned.

PROFICIENCY EXAMINATIONS 



Proficiency examinations are offered in most courses open to fresh- 
men and sophomores. A student may take proficiency examinations 
in more advanced undergraduate courses on recommendation of the 
head or chairperson of the department in which the course is offered 
and approval of the dean of the student's college. Departmental 
proficiency examinations are administered in individual sessions or 
scheduled group sessions during the semester. Departmental offices 
can provide information regarding test dates, places of administra- 
tion, types of examination, and references that might be used when 
preparing for examinations. Course descriptions and prerequisites 
are Listed in the Courses catalog. (See the inside back cover of this 
publication for locations at which the Courses catalog may be ob- 
tained.) Proficiency examinations are generally given without cost to 
students, but fees may be charged to defray the cost of proficiency 
examinations prepared by agencies outside the University. 

All regulations governing proficiency examinations will be ap- 
plied in the context that the University must reasonably accommodate 
a student's religious beliefs, observances, and practices in regard to 
scheduling of proficiency examinations if the student informs the 
person responsible for the scheduling of such examinations of the 
conflict within one week after being informed of the examination 
schedule. Any student may appeal an adverse decision. 

An enrolled undergraduate student who passes a proficiency 
examination is given credit toward graduation for the amount regu- 
larly allowed in the course (1 ) if it does not duplicate credit counted for 
admission to the University or credit earned through some other 
testing program and (2) if it is acceptable in the student's curriculum. 
No official record is made of failures in these examinations, but some 
departments may keep records to prohibit students from retaking the 
examinations. General campus policy information regarding profi- 
ciency examinations can be found in the Code on Campus Affairs and 
Handbook of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students. 

Transfer students should consult page 16 for the policy on accep- 
tance of proficiency credit for admission purposes. 



COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP) 

This program exists for the purpose of awarding proficiency credit, or 
otherwise recognizing college-level competence achieved outside the 
college classroom. Two types of tests are available: (1) the general 
examination covers the broad content of a study that might be ex- 
pected to be covered by several introductory-level courses, and (2) the 
subject matter examination covers the specific content of a single 
college course. Credit can be earned and will be recognized by the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for some CLEP General 
Examinations, but credit is not awarded for any of the CLEP Subject 
Matter Examinations. 

Most students must fulfill general education requirements for 
degree purposes in four areas: humanities, social science/history, 
biological science, and physical science. CLEP General Examinations 
in humanities and social science can be used to earn waivers of the 
corresponding general education requirements, or parts of them, and 
to earn degree credit. Credit is not awarded by the University for 
scores from the CLEP General Examinations in English composition, 
mathematics, or natural science. A CLEP test provides an opportunity 
for a student to demonstrate knowledge in a general subject area that 
is as thorough as that required of a graduate who has not majored in 
that particular area. General education requirements are designed to 
ensure that graduates of the University are generalists as well as 
specialists. The University recognizes that this general knowledge 
may have been acquired by entering students through high school 
work, independent study, extracurricular reading, projects, or work 
experience. CLEP General Examination scores can be used to earn 3 or 
6 credit hours and waiver of all or part of the requirement in each of 
the two general education areas. College policies vary in terms of the 
tests that are acceptable for earning credit and waiver, and in terms of 
the scores required for partial or complete waiver of a requirement. 

Students may take CLEP examinations at any CLEP National 
Testing Center designated by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), 
Box 966, Princeton, New Jersey 08540. Official score reports should be 
sent by ETS to coordinator, Placement and Proficiency Testing, Uni- 
versity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 247 Armory Building, 
c/o 182 Armory Building, 505 East Armory Avenue, Champaign, IL 
61820. Locations of CLEP National Testing Centers and test adminis- 
tration dates may be obtained by writing to ETS, or by inquiring at 
most college and high school counseling offices. 

CLEP test scores earned by beginning freshmen at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus, including students with less than 12 semester 
hours of transferable classroom credit attempted at other collegiate 
institutions, are evaluated for credit according to norms established 
for the campus. Transfer students should refer to the section on 
Acceptance of Nontraditional Transfer Credit on page 1 6 for the policy 
on accepting credit earned through CLEP examinations. 

CLEP examination scores reported by the Defense Activity for 
Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) testing centers will be 
evaluated against the same criteria that are applied to continuing 
students on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 

CAMPUS HONORS PROGRAM 

The Campus Honors Program (CHP) offers special challenges and 
opportunities to a small number of academically talented and highly 
motivated undergraduate students. It fosters collaborative relation- 
ships between students and distinguished faculty through small 
intensive classes, a faculty mentor system for introducing students to 
the intellectual standards and methodologies of academic disciplines, 
and informal contacts encouraged by cocurricular offerings. CHP 
sponsors four series of noncredit cocurricular events: A "Scholar 
Adventurers" lecture series on faculty research; a "Study Abroad at 
Home" series of seminar-workshops centering on other cultures; a 
series of dress-rehersal visits at Krannert Center for the Performing 
Arts; and an "International Tasting Club" lunch series. The aim is to 
encourage breadth and excellence from the outset of the student's 
college career, and to facilitate interaction with scholars at the cutting 
edge of their disciplines. 

Only approximately 100 new students can be admitted to the CHP 
each year as first-year students. A few additional students, however, 
may join the program on an off-cycle basis at the beginning of the 
sophomore year. Designated as Chancellor's Scholars, CHP students 
may be enrolled in any undergraduate curriculum. Those who meet 
retention requirements continue as Chancellor's Scholars throughout 



Programs of Study 



their undergraduate career. Required CHP course work is concen- 
trated in the freshman and sophomore years when students take 
intensive and specialized versions of general education courses. At 
the junior and senior level, when students are necessarily involved in 
their majors, they are required to take one advanced CHP seminar. In 
short, because the CHP is directed at students who desire an under- 
graduate education that is broad and general as well as professionally 
specialized, the emphasis is on fundamental principles and interdis- 
ciplinary connections. 

It is important to understand what CHP is not, as to understand 
what it is. CHP courses represent additional opportunities for aca- 
demically gifted and adventerous students; they are not an alternative 
curriculum. Basically, they provide an honors-quality way of satisfy- 
ing general education requirements for graduation and of helping 
students to discover the interrelations between their own discipline 
and other disciplines. Nor does CHP supplant or conflict with depart- 
mental honors programs. In consultation with their departmental 
academic advisers, Chancellor's Scholars develop their own combina- 
tion of regular and CHP courses. Accordingly, most of the courses 
CHP students take are regular University offerings. 

Most importantly, CHP is a challenge. A Chancellor's Scholar 
must make a special commitment to the intellectual life, and to the 
dialogue and community in the Honors House. 

BENEFITS 

As a small general studies program within a large state university, the 
Campus Honors Program seeks to combine the advantages of a major 
public institution with those of a small liberal arts college. Opportuni- 
ties offered by the program include: 

— Challenging courses designed especially for CHP students with 
limited enrollment (usually fifteen students or fewer), 

— Summer grants to fund student research projects ($1,000) and to 
support student domestic and foreign travel ($500 and $1,000, 
respectively), 

— A variety of social and intellectual activities outside the classroom, 
including cultural events and seminars on topics of interest, 

— Access to the University Library stacks, 

— Transcript notation of Chancellor's Scholar status, 

— Access to computer facilities in the Honors House and to a spe- 
cially developed communications network, 

— - Orientation and senior sibling programs for incoming students, 

— Honors House, the honors student center, which offers an atmo- 
sphere conducive to study and relaxation, 

— Priority registration for classes, and 

— Interaction with an outstanding group of peers. 

ADMISSION 

Entering freshmen with high ACT/SAT scores and exceptional high 
school records are invited by CHP to apply for admission to the 
program, but any incoming or currently enrolled freshman may ask to 
be considered. Acceptance is based upon such factors as standardized 
test scores, high school class rank and grade-point average, evidence 
of creative and leadership abilities as displayed in extracurricular 
interests and activities, the strength of application essays, and evi- 
dence of willingness to accept CHP challenges and contribute to the 
program. The Honors Program is open to students in all majors 
offered on the Urbana-Champaign campus, and an effort is made to 
ensure that each incoming class of Chancellor's Scholars is broadly 
representative of the curricula of the University as a whole. Students 
who are strongly motivated not only to excel, but also to make a 
difference at Illinois are sought for Chancellor's Scholars.

EDMUND J. JAMES UNDERGRADUATE HONORS 
PROGRAMS 

Undergraduate honors programs, named for one "I Hi- I University's 
lents, Edmund I fames, provide a number oi 

rri llaropportunilic ,to,i. ademi< allvlalented imdergradu 

■ iion by the University as "James Scholars" 

ibility .mil ,n hievement. It en- 

m luding the extended 



use of library facilities, and charges them with the responsibility for 
seeking sustained intellectual achievement throughout their under- 
graduate careers. James Scholar honors students are characterized by 
outstanding academic records; high general aptitudes for college 
work; and reputations for seriousness of purpose, persistence, and 
self-discipline in educational endeavors. 

A student electing to participate in the program may enroll in any 
undergraduate curriculum; unusual academic arrangements are open 
to James Scholar honors students in all courses of study. These 
arrangements include provision of honors courses and sections, spe- 
cial seminars, and interdisciplinary colloquia. In addition, James 
Scholars are encouraged to pursue individual scholarly interests 
through independent study and research projects. Administrative 
coordination of all undergraduate honors programs is currently con- 
ducted by the Office of Admissions and Records. There is no monetary 
award associated with this program, and students who need financial 
assistance should apply to the Office of Student Financial Aid. 

NOMINATION PROCEDURES 

Academic requirements for participation in the program are deter- 
mined by the respective colleges. Undergraduates in most colleges 
may "self-nominate" into the program, provided that the decision is 
based on prior achievement and on high school and college faculty or 
administrative advice, and is accomplished prior to the terminal dates 
set for entry into academic programs leading to honors degrees. In the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, entering students with higher 
than a predetermined college selection index are automatically admit- 
ted as James Scholar Designates. (See page 1 23 for further information 
regarding James Scholar honors students in Liberal Arts and Sci- 
ences.) Students may elect to leave the program or may be removed for 
failure to meet standards of academic performance in the various 
colleges. 

During summer advance enrollment, freshmen in most colleges 
will receive additional information regarding specific college pro- 
grams leading to honors degrees. At that time, in consultation with an 
adviser, a student may self-nominate into the program and select an 
honors course or plan other honors activities. 

Although the honors program in each college varies in detail, any 
incoming freshman electing to undertake an honors program will 
enter the University as a James Scholar Designate. After completion of 
a period on campus, each designate's record will be reviewed by his 
or her college. The student then will be invited to continue as a full 
James Scholar honors student or advised to leave the program on the 
basis of criteria developed by the college. Resident and transfer 
students wishing to self-nominate into the program should inquire at 
their college offices. 

JAMES SCHOLAR RECOGNITION 

Successful performance for one year as a James Scholar honors stu- 
dent is recognized and recorded on the student's University record as 
Edmund J. James Scholar (year). 

Specific inquiries regarding the honors program of a particular 
college may be addressed to the college office in care of the honors 
dean. 

HONORS CREDIT LEARNING AGREEMENTS 

It is not expected that a James Scholar honors student will take a full 
schedule of special courses; however, at least one honors activity each 
semester is considered normal. To encourage sustained independent 
intellectual activity by superior students, the campuswide Honors 
Credit Learning Agreement Program enables students to earn offi- 
cially recognized honors credit in regular undergraduate courses. 
This is accomplished by a learning agreement between student and 
instructor whereby the student undertakes a special course-related 
project. Upon successful completion of the project, the student is 
awarded transcript-designated honors credit forthecourse. Forms for 
initiation of honors credit learning agreements are available in the 
college offices. 

TRANSITION PROGRAM 

Established in I486, the Transition Program is a campus-sponsored 
academic support program designed to provide assistance to a group 
of 100 students admitted each year who have academic weaknesses 
thai could place them "at risk" if they were permitted to enter the 
University without such assistance. The goal of the program is to 
provide students with a "home base" where they feel comfortable 



Special Programs 
33 



about asking questions, expressing their concerns, and receiving the 
support, advice and encouragement they need to be academically 
successful at, and to graduate from, the University of Illinois. Students 
.ire consistently encouraged to succeed; more important, they are 
shown tlOW to succeed in the college classroom. 

These bright and talented students are admitted to the University 
through the Educational Opportunities Program and placed in the 
Transition Program housed in the College of Liberal Arts and Sci- 
ences, where they will receive developmental academic support for 
two vears After a student has successfully completed four semesters 
in the Transition Program, an admission space is reserved in the 
college and or curriculum of his or her choice, if the student is in good 
academic standing (C average or better) and has completed the 
required core courses for admission to that college and/or 
curriculum. 

The Transition Program is divided into two major components — 
the Summer Bridge component and an academic year component. 
Both components provide the student with 

1 . Intensive academic and career counseling. 

2. Extensive academic and personal support services plus opportu- 
nities to enroll in support-based sections of existing courses. 

3. Comprehensive developmental skills as well as enhancement and 
enrichment activities. 

Only those students who officially apply to the University in the 
standard manner prescribed by the Office of Admissions and Records 
and who meet established campus and program deadlines for appli- 
cation will be considered for admission and placement in the Transi- 
tion Program. The final decision on which students will be admitted 
and placed in the Transition Program is the joint responsibility of the 
director of the Office of Admissions and Records and the director of 
the Transition Program, acting on behalf of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences. 

GENERAL CRITERIA FOR PLACEMENT IN THE TRANSITION 
PROGRAM 

An applicant with a score of 17 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area (320 on the SAT Verbal subtest area) or a score of 17 or lower on 
the ACT mathematics subtest area (350 on the SAT Math subtest area) 
is eligible for admission consideration through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Transition 
Program. In some cases, an interview with a Transition Program staff 
member may be required before an admission decision can be reached. 

BRIDGE ADMISSION 

An applicant with a score of 15 or lower on the ACT English subtest 
area or a score of 16 or lower on the ACT mathematics subtest area is 
eligible for admission consideration only through participation in the 
Educational Opportunities Program and placement in the Summer 
Bridge component of the Transition Program, unless there is strong 
evidence that participation in Summer Bridge is not necesssary for the 
applicant's success. (Other applicants may be invited or required to 
participate in the Transition Program or the Summer Bridge compo- 
nent if, in the judgment of the director of the Office of Admissions and 
Records and the director of the Transition Program, such participation 
is necessary for the applicants' success at the University.) 

A student who meets Summer Bridge criteria will be required to 
complete diagnostic tests designed for the Transition Program, fol- 
lowed by a personal interview with a program staff member before an 
admission decision can be reached. 

Eligibility of Summer Bridge participants to continue enrollment 
in the fall semester is contingent upon acceptable academic perfor- 
mance in the summer program and recommendation by the director 
of the Transition Program. 

THE SUMMER BRIDGE COMPONENT 

Each summer, 50 of the 100 students selected for placement in the 
Transition Program are required to participate in a six-week residen- 
tial summer session on the UIUC campus sponsored by the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences. The session engages these students in 
intensive course work in mathematics, composition, and basic skills 
development. In addition, Summer Bridge participants are provided 
with a variety of cultural enrichment activities and orientation to 
University resources, support services, and campus living. 

The Summer Bridge experience is provided at no cost to the students. 
Each participant receives institutional financial assistance to cover the 
cost of tuition, room, board, and books. In addition, with the exception 



of students who will participate in intert ollegiage athletics and who are not 
eligible for such added financial assistance under current National Collegiate 
. ithletic Association regulations, each participant receives a stipend of a 
modest weekly allowance and a lump-sum payment at the end of the 
summer session. 

Each Summer Bridge participant must successfully complete all 
course work with a grade of C or better before gaining admission for 
the fall semester. The Bridge experience offers students an invaluable 
opportunity to get a head start on their undergraduate education and 
to make important adjustments to the multiple demands of college 
life, including learning the difference between getting by and getting 
ahead. At the end of Summer Bridge, each student fully understands 
the relationship between hard work and success in the college class- 
room: the summer experience makes a significant difference! 

THE ACADEMIC YEAR COMPONENT 

Each fall, the successful Summer Bridge participants join the 50 other 
newly admitted Transition Program students. Each of the 200 Transi- 
tion Program students (including 100 returning sophomores) is as- 
signed to an adviser who is a graduate or professional student at the 
University. Each graduate adviser is responsible for providing aca- 
demic, career, and personal counseling to a group of twenty students; 
each student is required to meet with his or her graduate adviser at 
least once a week. The graduate advisers, along with the director and 
associate director of the program, carefully monitor the academic 
progress of the students daily to ensure their success. 

In cooperation with various departments and colleges on campus, 
the Transition Program sponsors special sections of existing courses 
that are tailored to meet the students' individual needs. These courses 
are small and allow for extensive teacher-student interaction; in 
addition, the instructors for these courses meet regularly with the 
program staff and submit weekly reports on the progress of the 
students. At no cost to the students, additional academic support is 
provided by the Office of Minority Student Affairs (see page 3).

tained by contacting the office of the director of the Transition Pro- 
gram, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall, 702 South

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES PROGRAM 



GENERAL NATURE AND PURPOSE 

The Educational Opportunities Program (EOP), administered by the 
Office of Minority Student Affairs (see page 3), provides academic 
services and counseling support to students who (1) are academically 
underprepared or (2) come from backgrounds that are 
underrepresented on the Urbana campus. The program's emphasis is 
on supporting incoming students identified by the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records and college offices as being academically at risk in 
their preferred curricula. 

Students in the program, along with many other students, receive 
financial support from federal loans and grants, Illinois Student 
Assistance Commission Monetary Awards, and University tuition 
waivers. They also contribute toward their expenses through family 
contributions, summer and part-time employment, and personal 
loans. Supportive services for the program are provided by federal 
and University funds. 

Through the Educational Opportunities Program, the University 
is attempting to: 

— Admit students who otherwise might not be able to undertake a 
college-level program at a major educational institution, and assist 
them in completing a baccalaureate degree. Participants receive 
the same benefits as other students and additional support if 
required. 

— Increase the number of students from ethnic minority groups 
underrepresented on campus. 

— Develop educational programs and policies, both academic and 
administrative, that will assist and support students in the pro- 
gram and that may well benefit all students. 

— Provide students not in the program the vital cultural and social 
experience of meeting, living with, and learning from students 
from other cultures. 

— Add ethnic diversity to the campus. 



Programs of Study 



— Provide and disseminate to other educational institutions and 
agencies information that will increase their ability to deal with 
educational and sociological problems of students from nontradi- 
tional backgrounds. 

— Provide information on securing financial aid, student employ- 
ment, and postgraduate opportunities to program participants. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to the Educational Opportunities Program is limited to 
applicants from Illinois who are educationally or economically disad- 
vantaged and who fall into one of the following categories: 

— Beginning freshmen who meet the high school subject pattern 
requirements and the high school rank and test score combinations 
prescribed for the colleges and curricula of their choice. 

— Students not meeting the stated academic requirements, if the 
deans of the colleges concerned and the director of admissions and 
records (or their designated representatives) concur. 

It should be noted that in some curricula, such as the performing arts 
and aviation, additional requirements must be met. (See page 13.) 

SUPPORTIVE SERVICES 

Supportive services are available to help Educational Opportunities 
Program students meet a wide range of needs, as follows: 

— Extensive academic advising, taking into consideration students' 
past educational achievements, test results, abilities, and interests. 
The optimal class schedules and course selections are determined 
by students in consultation with special academic advisers in the 
various colleges. 

— Specially designed course offerings, including basic courses in 
rhetoric, mathematics, and psychology, and special class sections 
in regular courses. 

— A Reading and Study Methods Clinic and Writing Laboratory to 
help improve reading, writing, and study skills. 

— A tutoring system conducted by faculty members and students to 
help students in the program effectively approach and master 
subject content. 

— An office with a specially trained staff to provide academic, social, 
personal, financial, and career assistance and general counseling. 

— Precollege orientation programs to help students gain a greater 
awareness of the programs and services available at the University. 

APPLICATION 

Applicants for participation in the Educational Opportunities Pro- 
gram must submit complete admission applications and arrange for 
their high school transcripts and test scores to be sent to the Office of 
Admissions and Records. They must also complete Financial Need 
Analysis Forms, indicating the desire to be considered for the Illinois 
Student Assistance Commission Monetary Award, the Pell Grant, and 
University aid. 

Application forms and additional information about the program 
may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SERVICES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES 

The design of the campus and the programming of the Division of 
Rehabilitation-Education Services afford students with physical dis- 
abilities access to all campus academic and extracurricular programs 
Division services are available to students with disabilities and in- 
clude physical therapy and functional training; counseling; transpor-

COURSE ATTENDANCE BY ILLINOIS HIGH SCHOOL 
STUDENTS 

tudenl are permitted, while in high 
forcollegi en dii I hey may also 



enroll for college credit in correspondence and extramural courses 
offered by the University. 

To qualify for high school and on-campus University concurrent 
enrollment, a student must be recommended by his or her high school 
principal and have a 4.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point average. Students are 
assessed tuition at the regular undergraduate nondegree student rates. 

Courses taken by these students involve work over and above the 
secondary school curriculum. Grades and course credits will appear 
on their permanent University records and on official transcripts. If 
these students enter the University after high school graduation, the 
courses, if applicable, will be credited toward University graduation. 

A student applying for on-campus admission under this program 
should be prepared to submit the following materials upon request: 

— A $30 check or money order payable to the University of Illinois, 
for the nonrefundable application fee. 

— A nondegree application for admission to the University (not 
required of students who were previously enrolled under this 
plan). 

— An official copy of the student's high school transcript covering all 
work completed in high school and courses in progress, together 
with ACT or SAT test score if available. Acceptance under this 
program does not guarantee later acceptance as a degree 
candidate. 

Information and applications for this program may be obtained 
from the Office of Admissions and Records at the address on the inside 
back cover. A separate undergraduate admission application is re- 
quired if a student desires to attend the University after high school 
graduation or under the Early Admission Program described in the 
next section. 

A student interested in correspondence study should request 
information and an application form as described on page 17. It is 
suggested that students begin correspondence study to coincide with 
the start of a fall or spring semester at the University. Applications 
should be submitted before the beginning of a semester. For the 
summer session, applications should be submitted by the middle of 
May. 

EARLY ADMISSION PROGRAM 

Under the Early Admission Program, a high school student meeting 
competitive admission requirements except receipt of a high school 
diploma may be enrolled in the University after the junior year. This 
may reduce the length of the combined high school and college 
education by one year. Although each application is treated as a 
special admission case, a prospective student must have completed 
his or her junior year in high school, have earned 15 units toward a 
high school diploma, be in good academic standing, be recommended 
by a high school staff member who is able to evaluate the student's 
work, and meet competitive admission standards. Those accepted in 
the program are enrolled in regular four-year curricula and treated as 
first-year students. 

A student interested in this program may apply for admission no 
sooner than January preceding the fall term of planned entry so that 
the application can include complete information about the student's 
fall semester. However, application should be completed as soon as 
possible after January 1. 

For complete information, contact the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the address on the inside back cover. 

DELAYED ADMISSION 

A person approved for admission may request that the admission be 
delayed for a maximum of one year to allow participation in nonaca- 
demic pursuits. An applicant who wishes to consider this alternative 
should request further information from the Office of Admissions and 
Records at the time that he or she accepts the admission offer since the 
program is limited. 



CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT 



A student in good academic standing at Parkland College or at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign may concurrently enroll 
in i nurses offered by the other institution if such courses are not 
available at the student's primary i ampus. Prior written approval for 
concurrent enrollment must be obtained from the dean of students at 



Grading System and Other Regulations 



Parkland College and the concerned college office at the University 
campus. 

\ concurrent enrollee is .1 part-time nondegree student at the 
•..a ondar) institution who pays the tuition .nut fees regularly assessed 
at that institution m accordance with the amount ol work taken. The 
application fee 1- waived. 

STUDY AWAY FROM CAMPUS 

The University permits a student who has been enrolled on campus 
tor at least a semester or summer session, with the approval of the 
student's adviser and the appropriate departmental and college of- 
fices, to undertake independent study away from campus either in the 
United States or abroad 

Colleges and departments may establish variable credit courses 
that permit students, upon payment of an appropriate fee, to continue 
enrollment in the University while studying away from campus. Final 
determination of credit is made by the department and college 
concerned. 

Overseas study programs offered by each college are described in 
the individual college sections of this catalog. 

Grading System and Other Regulations 

Academic, administrative, and conduct regulations are published in 
the Code on Campus Affairs and Handbook of Policies and Regulations 
Applying to All Students. Students are responsible for complying with 
these regulations of the University and those of the colleges and 
departments from which they take courses. This publication is avail- 
able to students in the lobby of the Turner Student Services Building, 
in 1 77 Henry Administration Building, and at the Information Desk in 
the Illini Union. A copy may also be obtained by writing to the Office 
of Admissions and Records. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Facultv members have the responsibility to provide the University 
with an individual evaluation of the work of each student in their 
classes. Final course grades are entered on the student's permanent 
University record at the close of each semester, term, or session. The 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign uses the following grad- 
ing system: A = excellent; B = good; C = fair; D = poor (lowest passing 
grade); E = failure, including courses dropped for academic irregulari- 
ties; Ab = absent from the final examination without an acceptable 
excuse (counts as a failure). If a student is absent from a final exami- 
nation and it is clear that taking the examination could not have 
resulted in a passing grade for the course, a grade of E may be given 
instead of Ab. In addition to the above grades, instructors in the 
College of Law are authorized to assign plus and minus grades. 

COMPUTATION OF SCHOLASTIC AVERAGES 

For numerical computation of scholastic averages, the following 
values are designated: A = 5.0; B = 4.0; C = 3.0; D = 2.0; E and Ab = 1.0. 
(College of Law only: A = 5.0; A- = 4.67; B+ = 4.33; B = 4.0; B- = 3.67; C+ 
= 3.33; C = 3.0; D = 2.0; E and Ab = TO.) 

UNIFORM METHOD FOR CALCULATION 

A uniform method for calculating undergraduate grade-point aver- 
ages has been established for all undergraduate colleges on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. These averages are calculated on the 
basis of all courses attempted for which grades and credits are 
assigned and that carry credit in accordance with the Courses catalog. 
Since courses offered by the religious foundations on or near the 
Urbana-Champaign campus are not official University courses and 
are not included in the Courses catalog, the grades earned in such 
courses will not be included in the calculation of any grade-point 
averages. Grades of S, U, CR, NC, and Pass (see next section on Other 
Symbols in Use) are reported on official University transcripts but are 
not included in grade-point averages since grade-points are not 
assigned to these letter grades. This method of calculation is used to 
determine honors, probation and drop status, financial aid and scho- 
lastic awards, and transfer between colleges on this campus. 

For the purpose of computing a grade-point average for gradua- 
tion, only the grades received in those courses counting toward the 
degree, including grades in repeated courses, are included in the 
average. (See Grade-Point Requirements for the Bachelor's Degree on 
page 38.) 



For the special method used to determine eligibility for transfer 
into the University, refer to the transfer admission policy on page 15. 

OTHER SYMBOLS IN USE (NOT INCLUDED IN THE 
COMPUTATION OF AVERAGES) 

W — Approved withdrawal without credit. 

EX — Temporarily excused. Approved extension of time to complete 
the final examination or other requirements of the course. 
Applies to both undergraduate and graduate students. Entitles 
the student to an examination later without fee, or additional 
time to complete other requirements of the course. (Only the 
dean of the student's college may authorize such an extension 
of time in an individual case. A grade of EX that is not removed 
by the end of the first eight weeks of instruction in the next 
semester in which the student is enrolled in an undergraduate 
college on the Urbana-Champaign campus automatically be- 
comes a grade of E. If the student receiving an excused grade 
does not reenroll on the Urbana-Champaign campus, the ex- 
cused grade, if not removed, becomes an E after one calendar 
year.) 
CR — Credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of A, B, and C will automatically be 
converted to CR.) 
NC — No credit earned. To be used only in courses taken under the 
credit-no credit grading option. (Instructors report the usual 
letter grades. Grades of D, E, and Ab will automatically be 
converted to NC.) 
IP — Course in progress. 

Miss — Missing grade. Instructor has failed to submit a grade for the 
student. 
DF — Grade temporarily deferred. To be used only in those thesis, 
research, and special problems courses extending over more 
than one semester that are taken by graduate students as 
preparation for the thesis and by undergraduate students in 
satisfaction of the requirements for graduation with honors, 
and in other approved courses that extend over more than one 
semester. (Requests for use of the DF grade in courses that 
extend over more than one semester, and therefore require 
postponement of the final grade report, must be submitted in 
writing by the executive officer of the department offering the 
courses to the dean of the appropriate college for concurrence. 
A current list of courses that have received such approval is 
maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records.) 
S — Satisfactory, and 

U — Unsatisfactory. To be used only as final grades in graduate 
thesis research courses, in graduate and undergraduate courses 
given for zero credit, and in other courses that have been 
specifically approved by the head or the chairperson of the 
department concerned, with concurrence of the appropriate 
college dean. A current list of courses that have received such 
approval is maintained in theOff ice of Admissions and Records. 

Pass — To be used only in courses passed by special or proficiency 
examinations. A minimum grade of C is required to pass. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT GRADING OPTION 

The credit-no credit grading option is designed to encourage students 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Likewise, in computing a preadmission grade-point aver- 
age, some of these schools may convert the NC symbol into a failing 
grade since they do not know whether the actual grade was a D, E, or 
Ab. 

A full-time undergraduate student in good academic standing 
(not on probation) may, with the approval of his or her adviser, take 
a maximum of two courses each semester under the credit-no credit 
grading option. Part-time students may take one course each semester 
under this option. Summer session students may take one course 
under the credit-no credit option. 

A maximum of 18 semester hours earned under the credit-no 
credit grading option may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree 
at the Urbana-Champaign campus of the University. A correspon- 
dence course taken on a credit-no credit basis will be included in the 
1 8-semester-hour credit-no credit limit. 



Programs of Study 



Any lower- or upper-division course may be chosen under the 
credit-no credit option except courses used to satisfy the University's 
general education requirements, courses designated by name or area 
by the major department for satisfying the major, and those specifi- 
cally required by name by the college for graduation. In cases of 
subsequent change of major, courses previously taken under the 
credit-no credit option in the new field may qualify for meeting major 
requirements. 

For a course taken in residence, undergraduate students must 
exercise the credit-no credit option only during on-campus registra- 
tion, within the first eight weeks of instruction in a semester, during 
the first four weeks of an eight-week course taught in a fall or spring 
semester, during the first two weeks of instruction in the four-week 
summer term, or during registration or within the first four weeks of 
instruction in the eight-week term. Students may elect to return to the 
regular grade option by filing an amended request within the first 
eight weeks of instruction in a semester, within the first four weeks of 
instruction in an eight-week course taught during a semester, during 
the first two weeks of instruction in the four-week summer term, or 
within the first four weeks of instruction in the eight-week summer 
term. The credit-no credit option form must be properly approved and 
deposited in the college office. 

Instructors are not informed of those students in their classes who 
are taking work under the credit-no credit option, and they report the 
usual letter grades at the end of the course. These grades are automati- 
cally converted to CR or NC. Grades of C or better are required in order 
to earn credit. Credit-no credit courses are not counted toward the 
grade-point average but are included as part of the total credit hours. 
Final grades of CR or NC (for credit or no credit) are recorded on the 
student's permanent academic record and subsequently will not be 
changed to letter grades. 

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS 

Classification of an undergraduate student is made by the Office of 
Admissions and Records based upon the number of credit hours 
earned, which includes credit earned by examination or accepted for 
transfer by the University whether or not such credit is applicable to 
a student's degree program. Classification for registration, certifica- 
tion, and assessment purposes is based on the following scale. 

Freshman standing 0-29.9 hours 

Sophomore standing 30-59.9 hours 

Junior standing 60-89.9 hours 

Senior standing 90 or more hours 

TRANSCRIPTS OF ACADEMIC RECORDS 

Former and currently enrolled students who have paid their Univer- 
sity charges are entitled to receive, upon written request, transcripts 
of their academic records. Upon graduation or withdrawal from the 
University, any student with an outstanding loan is not issued a 
transcript until he or she has completed an exit interview with the 
Office of Student Accounts and Cashiering. Each transcript includes 
a student's entire academic record to date and current academic 
status. Partial transcripts are not issued. 

The charge for an official transcript is $5 per copy. The charge for 
a written certification of enrollment or other data is $4 per copy. The 
charge for additional copies ordered at the same time and sent to the same 
address or picked up is $2 per copy. 

A student who submits an application for direct transfer admis- 
sion to the University of Illinois at Chicago through the Urbana 
admissions office, 177 Henry Administration Building, will have a 
transcript included with it at no charge. 

Telephone requests for transcripts cannot be honored. Transcripts 

are released only by written request to whomever students or former 

mate. A written request accompanied by a check or 

nad payabli to the University of Illinois should be sent 

totheOffii eof Admissions and Records (see the inside back cover for

information. To be effective for a term, a request form must be 
submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records (Window 25, 
Room 1 00, Henry Administration Building) by the end of the fifth class 
day of the term. The University will continue to suppress this informa- 
tion until the student withdraws the request or fails to enroll in a 
subsequent term, excluding summer terms. 

For former students, directory information includes the student's 
name; date of birth; last known addresses and telephone numbers; 
college, curriculum, and major field of study; dates of attendance and 
full- or part-time status; class level; honors; certificates or degrees 
earned at the University and the date(s) conferred; weight and height

or agent of the University may be subject to discipline. 

IDENTIFICATION CARDS 

Each new student is issued a permanent photo identification card, 
which must be retained by the student while registered at the Univer- 
sity. The ID card remains the property of the University, and any 
student who alters or intentionally mutilates a University ID, who 
uses the ID of another, or who allows his or her own ID card to be used 
by another may be subject to discipline. 

A charge of $20 (amount subject to change) is assessed for replac- 
ing each lost, mutilated, confiscated, or stolen photo ID card. Ques- 
tions regarding the issuance of ID cards may be directed to the 
Campus ID Center, 244-0135. 

STUDENTS IN DEBT TO THE UNIVERSITY

GRADE-POINT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR'S 
DEGREE 

All candidates for a degree must have at least a 3.0 (A = 5.0) grade- 
point average on all University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 
credits counted for graduation requirements and at least a 3.0 grade- 
point average on the combined transfer and University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign credits counted for graduation requirements. 
Certain colleges have established higher scholastic graduation re- 
quirements for specific curricula. (Grades in courses taken at the other 
campus of the University are counted as transferred.) 

When a course has been repeated, both the original and subse- 
quent grades are included in the average if the course is acceptable 
toward graduation, but the credit is counted only once. An original 
grade is not removed from the student's record for a course subse- 
quently passed by special examination. 

Students who do not meet the requirements stated above may 
graduate if they have the minimum grade-point average calculated by 
either of the following alternative methods: 

— Courses in which grades of D or E have been recorded are excluded, 
not to exceed a total of 10 semester hours completed prior to the last 
30 hours of work completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and counted for graduation requirements, or 

— A grade-point average of no less than 3.1 is calculated for the last 60 
semester hours of work counted for graduation requirements and 
completed at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 
except in those curricula for which a higher scholastic graduation 
requirement is specified. 

Each college office, on request, will inform students regarding the 
scholarship regulations of that college. 

RESIDENCE REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION 



FIRST BACHELORS DEGREE 

In addition to meeting specific course and scholastic requirements, 
each candidate for a bachelor's degree from the University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign must spend either the first three years earning 
not fewer than 90 semester hours or the last year (two semesters, or the 
equivalent) earning not fewer than 30 semester hours in residence at 
the Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work in an- 
other institution. Only those courses that are applicable toward the 
degree sought may be counted in satisfying the above minimum 
requirements. (Either three twelve-week terms or four eight-week 
sessions are the equivalent of two semesters) 

Concurrent attendance at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign and another collegiate institution does not interrupt the 
residence requirement for graduation. 

Credit earned through the Advanced Placement Program is in- 
cluded in the first 90 semester hours and is not considered as interrupt- 
lence. 
Credit allowed toward graduation for completion oi courses of 
fferedb the religious foundations located in Urbana-Cham- 
paign is not counted as interrupting residence or counted toward 
ing minimum residence requirements for graduation.

hours acceptable toward their degrees, in addition to meeting the 
usual residence requirement for degrees from the University of Illi- 
nois at Urbana-Champaign. 

Students transferring from the University of Illinois at Chicago to 
the Urbana-Champaign campus as candidates for degrees must sat- 
isfy the residence and academic requirements for graduation estab- 
lished for the curriculum entered on the Urbana-Champaign campus. 
Since the campuses do not have identical academic programs, a 
student who is contemplating a transfer should consult with the 
college into which he or she expects to transfer. 

A student attending as "visitor only" is not considered a "student 
in residence." 

A student who requests that the residence requirement for gradu- 
ation be waived must submit a petition to the dean of his or her college, 
who will take action on the petition. 

A student on drop status may not graduate until he or she has been 
reinstated by the dean of the student's college. A student who meets 
the conditions stated in the first paragraph of this section must notify 
the dean of his or her college of the student's intent to apply credit 
earned elsewhere toward the degree requirements and arrange to 
have a final official transcript from the other collegiate institution(s) 
attended sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. 

SECOND BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

A student who has received one bachelor's degree may, with college 
approval, be permitted to receive a second bachelor's degree from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, provided that all speci- 
fied requirements for both degrees are fully met and that the curricu- 
lum offered for the second degree includes at least the final 30 
semester hours that are earned in residence at the Urbana-Champaign 
campus and not counted for the other degree. 

The second bachelor's degree may be earned either concurrently 
with or subsequent to the first degree. 

A candidate for a second bachelor's degree must meet the same 
residence requirements as for the first degree. 

Only those courses that are acceptable toward the degree sought 
may be counted in satisfying the above minimum requirements. This 
includes the 30 additional hours required for the second degree. 

GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS 

Undergraduate education at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign includes general education as an essential complement to 
major fields of study. General education uses the theories, concepts, 
and methods of the disciplines to broaden students' understanding 
and appreciation of human thought and achievement — and to pro- 
vide a richer context within which to understand their own special- 
ized fields. The campus general education component is intended to 
help students understand and appreciate diverse areas of scholarship, 
to develop and enhance a wide range of intellectual abilities, and to 
strengthen students' abilities to develop and communicate ideas 
effectively and responsibly. 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments have begun to implement enhanced general 
education requirements. Some further changes in requirements are 
expected to take effect in fall 1 995. Thus, new students should confirm 
their general education requirements by consulting college and de- 
partmental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 

A minimum of 6 hours each in the humanities, the social sciences, 
and the natural sciences is required for graduation in all undergradu- 
ate curricula. Approved courses should be distributed over at least 
three years. Upon request, the individual colleges will provide stu- 
dents with the general education requirements for their curricula and 
the list of courses acceptable for this purpose. 

COMPOSITION I AND II REQUIREMENT 

Satisfactory proficiency in the use of English is a requirement for all 
undergraduate degrees awarded at the Urbana-Champaign campus 
of the University. This proficiency will be certified by the fulfillment 
ol a two-parl requirement identified as Composition I and II. The 
second (Composition II) requirement became effective for new fresh- 
men entering in fall 1991 and was effective for new transfer students 
mi, i m; ',m Kill I'i'P The Composition 1 requirement can be met bv the 
satisfactor) completion ol one of the following courses or course 
sequences: Rhetorii 101 and l02;Rhetoricl03and 104; Rhetoric 105 or 
108; Ol S| )(•!■( h Communication Ml and 1 1 2 (Verbal Communication). 
A student with a sufl ntly high score on either the ACT English 



Graduation with Honors 



Subtest or the SAT Verbal Test and high performance on a written 
essa) examination maj satisfy the Composition 1 requirement for 
graduation Students ma) also proficiency the requirement by s< oring 
4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP) Test in language and compo- 
sition, or on the AP Test in literature. 

It the academic credentials oi a transfer student do not indicate 
fulfillment oi course work equivalent to the University of Dlinois's 
Composition 1 requirement, the student may be administered the 
Rhetoric Placement and Proficiency Examination, the ESL Placement 
rest or the Transfer Writing Examination. 

Under certain conditions, students may satisfy the Composition I 
requirement for graduation through s.nist.u tory completion of courses 
offered by the Division of English as an International language. 
Satisfactory completion of courses (ESL 114 and ESL 115) satisfies the 
Composition I requirement Evidence that a student is eligible to 
enroll in these courses is established by a satisfactory score on the ESL 
Placement rest, a test ot oral and w ntten English administered by the 
Division oi English as an International Language. On the basis of this 
test, the student will be enrolled in the course or courses appropriate 
to his or her English needs. 

If a student's score on the ESL Placement Test is high enough so 
that he or she does not have to take ESL 1 1 3, the student is free to take 
either ESL 114 and ESL 1 15 or Rhetoric 105. If the student chooses to 
do the latter, he or she must take the Rhetoric Placement and Profi- 
ciency Examination offered by the Department of English. 

TheComposition II requirement may be met by satisfactory comple- 
tion of any course that has been approved and designated as satisfying 
the demands of the Composition II requirement. The Composition II 
requirement cannot be met by passing a proficiency examination. 

A list of courses that fulfill the Composition II requirement is 
available from departmental and college advising staff. 

QUANTITATIVE REASONING 

The quantitative reasoning requirement became effective for new 
freshmen entering in fall 1994 and was effective for new transfer 
students entering in fall. This requirement applies to courses in the 
fields of mathematics, computer science, probability and statistics, 
and formal logic. The various colleges and programs of study differ on 
the specific courses which fulfill this requirement; courses which 
fulfill the campus quantitative reasoning requirement may not meet a 
specific college's requirements (or vice versa). Students should con- 
tact their college or departmental adviser for more information about 
fulfilling the quantitative reasoning requirement. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE COURSES 

Except as prohibited or limited by the established policy of the 
student's college, credit in University foreign language courses taken 
to remove high school entrance deficiencies may, at the discretion of 
the college, be counted in the total hours required for graduation or be 
accepted in partial or complete satisfaction of the foreign language 
requirement for the degree. 

Normally no more than 1 hours of proficiency credit for the study 
of a single foreign language at the elementary and intermediate level 
shall be counted for graduation in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. Additional credit may be granted for advanced courses 
emphasizing literature and language structure rather than communi- 
cative competence in the language. 

RELIGIOUS FOUNDATION COURSES 

Courses of study offered by the religious foundations located in 
Urbana-Champaign that have been approved by the College of Lib- 
eral Arts and Sciences Committee on Courses and Curricula are 
accepted for credit by the University provided that the student is 
currently registered in University courses. Registration in these courses 
is limited to students of sophomore standing or above who are 
currently registered on campus in University courses and must be 
approved in advance by the dean of the student's.college. Grades in 
these courses are not included in the student's all-University scholas- 
tic average, and the courses are not counted as interrupting residence 
or toward satisfying minimum residence requirements for 
graduation. 

A maximum of 10 semester hours of credit in religious foundation 
courses may, with the approval of the dean of the college concerned, 
be counted toward graduation. The College of Liberal Arts and 



Sciences has different restrictions which are given in detail in the LAS 
Student Handbook. 

The above credit limitations and other restrictions apply to reli- 
gious foundation courses only and not to courses offered by the 
University of Illinois Program in Religious Studies. 

CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTRAMURAL COURSES 

After matriculation, a student may count toward his or her degree, 
with the approval of the dean of the student's college, as many as 60 
semester hours of credit earned in extramural and /or correspondence 
study, provided that: 

— The student completes all of the remaining requirements for the 
degree in residence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 
paign, or 

— The student presents acceptable residence credit for work done 
elsewhere and completes requirements needed for his or her 
degree in residence at the University. In all cases, the senior year 
(two semesters of not less than 30 semester hours) must be done in 
residence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

A student who has completed the first three years in residence at 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, earning a minimum 
of 90 semester hours, may do all or part of the senior year in correspon- 
dence or extramural study, subject to meeting all of the requirements 
for the degree. 

Credit for correspondence work taken with fully accredited insti- 
tutions may be allowed, but only on approval of the dean of the 
student's college. 

THESES 

If a thesis is to be submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements 
for a bachelor's degree, the subject must be announced by the end of 
the sixth week of instruction in the first semester of the student's 
senior year. The work must be done under the direction of a professor 
in the department concerned and must be applicable to the curriculum 
in which a degree is expected. A maximum of 10 hours of credit in 
thesis work may be counted toward a bachelor's degree. 

UNDERGRADUATE CREDIT FOR SERVICE AND 
EDUCATION IN THE ARMED FORCES 

The University grants registered students college credit for certain 
training and experience in the armed forces of the United States. A 
student who completes military service in the U.S. Air Force, Army, 
Marine Corps, Navy, or Coast Guard, including basic or recruit 
training of six months or more, is awarded 4 semester hours of credit 
in basic military science upon presentation of evidence on Form DD- 
214 of honorable discharge or transfer to the reserve component. 

Correspondence courses for which the student has passed the end- 
of-course examination prepared by the U. S. Armed Forces Institute, 
that are baccalaureate-oriented, and that correspond in level and 
content to courses offered at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign are recognized for credit. 

Credit recommendations in the Guide to the Evaluation of Education 
Experiences in the Armed Forces (published by the American Council on 
Education) for military service school training will be considered for 
transfer credit as follows: (1) credit will be granted for college-level, 
baccalaureate-oriented training and education, (2) vocational credit 
related to the student's curriculum choice will be referred for consid- 
eration to the dean of the college in which the student is enrolled, and 
(3) duplicate credit will be deleted. Applicability of military credit 
toward a particular degree is determined by the dean of the college. 
Additional information may be obtained from the Office of Admis- 
sions and Records. 

Graduation with Honors 

Recognition for superior academic achievement is given by the Uni- 
versity and by the colleges and departments. 

UNIVERSITY HONORS 

Continuous academic achievement is recognized by inscribing the 
student's name on a Bronze Tablet that hangs on a wall of the Main 
Library. To qualify, an undergraduate student must: 



Programs of Study 



— Have at least a 4.5 (A = 5.0) cumulative grade-point average for all 
work taken at the University through the academic term prior to 
graduation, and 

— Rank, on the basis of his or her cumulative grade-point average 
(including University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and trans- 
fer work, if any) through the academic term prior to graduation, in 
the top 3 percent of the students in his or her college graduating 
class. 

Transfer students, in addition to meeting the general rules for 
qualification, must satisfy two additional requirements: they must 
have cumulative University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign grade- 
point averages as high as the lowest ones listed for students in their 
colleges who qualify on the basis of having completed all of their work 
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; and they must earn 
40 or more semester hours at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign through the academic term prior to graduation. 

For the purpose of this award, college graduating class means all 
students receiving bachelor's degrees from the same University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign college between July 1 of each year and 
June 30 of the next. 

For the purpose of this award, academic term prior to graduation 
means: for August graduates, the preceding spring semester; for 
October graduates, the preceding spring semester; for January gradu- 
ates, the preceding summer session; for May graduates, the preceding 
fall semester. The list will be determined each year after grades for the 
fall semester are available. To be considered in the calculation of 
University Honors, all grade corrections must be recorded by the end 
of the eighth week of the spring semester. 

COLLEGE HONORS 

Each college prescribes the conditions under which degree candidates 
may be recommended for graduation with honors. These distinctions 
are noted on students' diplomas, permanent University records, and 
official transcripts of credits. Detailed information concerning the 
requirements for graduation with honors is included in the sections of 
this catalog applying to the individual colleges and departments. 

PHI KAPPA PHI 

The national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi recognizes and encour- 
ages superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. To be eligible, a 
junior (72 to 89 letter-graded hours) must have a minimum cumula- 
tive grade-point average of 4.75 and a scholastic rank in the upper 5 
percent of the junior class; seniors (90 or more letter-graded hours) 
must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 4.5 and a 
scholastic rank in the upper 10 percent of the senior class. 

Invitations to membership are mailed to all eligible juniors and 
seniors, and an initiation program is held near the end of each 
semester. 

THE DEANS LIST 

The names of undergraduates who have achieved grade-point aver- 
ages for a given semester in the top 20 percent of their college class will 
be included on a list prepared for the dean of the college. (In the 
College of Fine and Applied Arts, the names of eligible undergradu- 
ates who have achieved grade-point averages for a given semester in 
the top 20 percent of all students in their curriculum will be listed.) This 
list is publicized within the University and is sent to news agencies 
throughout the state. Names of James Scholars are preceded by an 
and (&). 
To be eligible for Dean's List recognition, students must complete 
1 1 illy 1 4 academic semester hours, of which at least 12 must be

aerospace studies courses should be aware that University policy prohibits 
discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; students may enrol) in these courses 
regardless of sexual orientation. As of the date of the publication of this catalog, 
students seeking to enroll in ROTC are not asked to disclose their sexual orientation. 
However, homosexual conduct is grounds for disenrollment from the program. 



ARMY ROTC 



Military training has been given at the Urbana-Champaign campus 
since the University opened in 1868. Originally mandatory for all male 
undergraduates under the land-grant charter, the program became 
entirely voluntary in 1964. The Army Reserve Officers' Training 
Corps is open to all University students, regardless of their academic 
majors or levels. 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION 

The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps is an elective program 
that provides career opportunities, leadership experience, adventure 
training, and financial support to participating students. The program 
is a consecutive series of elective courses and other training, including 
leadership laboratories and field trips designed to prepare young men 
and women for leadership positions as officers in the U. S. Army, 
Army Reserve, and Army National Guard. The leadership principles 
and management techniques presented, however, are equally appli- 
cable to success in any field. Financial support is provided both by 
state, federal, and named scholarships and by a subsistence allowance 
of $100 a month. 

LEADERSHIP TRAINING 

Students' leadership is continuously developed through a Leadership 
Assessment Program (LAP). The LAP evaluates students' leadership 
potential in a variety of leadership roles and provides immediate 
feedback to students. Emphasis is on hands-on leadership experience. 
Cadets plan, organize, and evaluate much of the laboratory and field 
training. 

ADVENTURE TRAINING 

Training in mountaineering techniques (rappelling), land navigation, 
survival, rifle marksmanship, and waterborne operations is given to 
every student. Some students are selected to attend the Army airborne 
school, helicopter operations school, and leadership training with 
active and reserve units. 

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE SCHOLARSHIPS 

Enrollment in Army ROTC can provide significant financial support 
to interested students, regardless of family financial need. Army 
ROTC offers three financial aid programs that provide support to 
Army ROTC cadets: the Army ROTC Federal Scholarship program, 
the Illinois State ROTC Scholarship program, and the Simultaneous 
Membership Program of the Army ROTC and the National Guard or 
Army Reserve. The federal scholarships are competitive scholarships 
available for college-bound high school juniors and seniors, and 
college freshmen and sophomores. These scholarships provide funds 
for tuition, University fees, books, and $100 a month for four, three, or 
two years, depending on the time of application. Illinois State ROTC 
Scholarships are competitive scholarships that provide full tuition 
waivers for ROTC students who are residents of the state. The Simul- 
taneous Membership Program allows students to join the Army 
Reserve or Army National Guard and also to join Army ROTC. The 
program provides the student with increased reserve forces pay, 
benefits of the new GI Bill, and $100 a month from Army ROTC. 
Engineering students who are enrolled in Army ROTC are eligible for 
other additional financial aid through named scholarships. These 
students should contact the ROTC office for further details. All Army 
ROTC cadets, as a minimum, receive $100 a month for their last two 
years in the program if they meet the requirements for continuing. 

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 

The I raining and instruction a re designed to prepare students to serve 
as officers in the U.S. Army. This may be full time, on active duty, or 
pari time with the Army Reserve or National Guard. Service with the 
resi rve forces allows pursuit of a civilian career while simultaneously 
serving theeounliv as an officer. Approximately half of Army ROTC 
graduates pursue civilian careers and have discovered that their 
ROTC leadership training is an invaluable tool for success. For engi-

PROGRAM OPTIONS 

1 1 our years— the student attends one military science course each 
semester 

2. Three and one-half years — the student takes two military science 
courses during the first semester, then one course each semester 
thereafter 

3. Three years — the student takes two military science courses per 
semester during the first year, then one course each semester 
thereafter 

4. Two years — those students with prior military experience (junior 
ROTC, prior military service) may receive credit for the first two 
years of Army ROTC and begin with the second two years. Also, 
students who are interested in the program, but who were not 
involved in ROTC during their first two years of college, may join 
during these last two years by attending a six-week camp during 
the summer, for which each student receives more than $600 in 
pay. 

ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

The first- and second-year educational program in military science 
consists of the courses MIL S 111, 113, 121, and 123. These 1-hour 
courses are designed to give students a basic understanding of the 
national defense establishment, the role of the U.S. Army officer, 
military tactics, and military-related skills. 

The third and fourth years of military science, consisting of MIL S 
231, 233, 241, and 243, are designed to develop the skills and attitudes 
vital to assuming leadership positions. 

A leadership laboratory is required with each academic course. 
The leadership laboratory is one hour per week for the first two years 
and two hours per week the last two years. Practical experience is 
provided in military and leadership skills in a framework that pro- 
vides maximum opportunity to develop each student's self-confi- 
dence, decisiveness, and leadership potential. 

To develop the student's academic diversity, each student must 
complete a course in math reasoning, computer literacy, human 
behavioral science, oral/written communications, and military his- 
tory, prior to being commissioned. These courses may be used to fulfill 
other academic degree requirements.

sent of their governments to be ROTC students. 

Enrollment in laboratories requires instructor approval, and stu- 
dents must meet service entrance requirements. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 

For additional information regarding any of these programs, contact 
the professor of military science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-

paign, 1L 61820, (217) 333-1550. 

NAVAL ROTC 

The Naval ROTC program is a professional educational opportunity 
in which a student can earn a commission in the U.S. Navy or Marine 
Corps while pursuing a baccalaureate degree. This professional foun- 
dation is then developed and broadened during active service as a 
commissioned officer after graduation and commissioning. A student 
may be enrolled in either the Scholarship Program or the College 
Program (nonscholarship). There are four-year programs for entering 
freshmen and two-year programs for students who have already 
completed part of their college education. 

For scholarship students, no military obligation is incurred until 
the beginning of the sophomore year. College program students incur 
the military obligation at the commencement of the junior year. Naval 
science courses are open to all students, upon consent of the Depart- 
ment of Naval Science, even if they are not enrolled in either of these 
programs. 

FOUR-YEAR NAVY-MARINE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

The Navy-Marine Scholarship Program provides the student with full 
tuition, fees, books, and a tax-free subsistence pay (currently $150 per 
month) for as long as four years. A student in good standing and 
enrolled in a degree program that requires longer than four years to 
complete may apply for fifth-year scholarship benefits with agree- 
ment to serve additional active service after commissioning, or the 
student may take a leave of absence of as long as a year to finish the 
baccalaureate degree. Upon graduation, scholarship students are 
commissioned in the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marine Corps and serve four 
years on active duty. Newly commissioned officers who qualify have 
the opportunity to continue their education toward advanced 
degrees. 

Scholarship selection in national competition is based on the 
applicant's Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or American College Test- 
ing (ACT) Program score, high school and college records, aptitude 
for naval service as judged by interviews, and by prescribed physical 
qualifications. 

Scholarship students have an opportunity during the summer to 
practice what they have learned in the classroom. Three summer 
training periods of approximately four to six weeks each are taken by 
students either at sea aboard a U.S. Navy vessel; at a squadron or 
amphibious base, or at a naval air station; or on board a nuclear 
submarine. Students who choose to enter the U.S. Marine Corps spend 
their last summer training period at the Marine Corps Officer Candi- 
date School in Quantico, Virginia. 

FOUR-YEAR NAVY-MARINE COLLEGE PROGRAM 

A Navy-Marine College Program student receives all required uni- 
forms and naval science textbooks while enrolled, and a subsistence 
allowance (currently $150 per month) during the junior and senior 
years. If the degree program requires longer than four years to 
complete, the student may apply for a fifth-year benefit of subsistence 
pay with agreement of additional active service after commissioning 
or may take a leave of absence as long as a year to finish the baccalau- 
reate degree. Upon graduation, the college program student is com- 
missioned in the U.S. Naval or U.S. Marine Corps Reserve and serves 
three of the eight years of reserve obligation on active duty. 

A student may apply for admission to the college program through 
the professor of naval science, who makes the final selection. This 
selection is based on academic, physical, and military aptitude crite- 
ria. College program students also attend one summer at-sea training 
session, usually after the junior year. 

College program students are eligible to be selected for the schol- 
arship program through recommendation of the professor of naval 
science; the decision is made by the chief of naval education and 
training (CNET). These students are also eligible to receive Illinois 
State ROTC scholarships (if residents of this state). These scholarships 
are awarded annually on a competitive basis and cover tuition only. 

TWO-YEAR COLLEGE PROGRAM 

This program provides a student with all required uniforms, naval 
science textbooks, and subsistence pay (currently $150 per month). 
Applicants should have two remaining years of study at the Urbana- 
Champaign campus. During the summer before the junior year, 
students attend a six-week course of military instruction at the Naval 



Programs of Study 



Science Institute at Newport, Rhode Island. Transportation costs and 
salaries are paid to the students. After successful completion of the 
course, they join their contemporaries in the college program and also 
may be eligible for appointment to scholarship status, depending on 
their backgrounds and academic performances. College program 
students participate in a four-to-six-week summer at-sea training 
period between their junior and senior years, as do their scholarship 
counterparts. Applications must be complete and reach CNET by 15

AIR FORCE ROTC 



The Air Force Reserve Officers' Training Corps at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is an elective program that provides 
professional military training for participating students. The program 
is a consecutive series of elective courses, leadership laboratories, and 
field training experiences designed to prepare young men and women 
for leadership positions as commissioned officers in the U.S. Air Force. 
The curriculum, however, is applicable to success in any field. 

For qualified applicants, Air Force ROTC offers two-, three-, and 
four-year programs leading to a commission as an Air Force officer. 
Three- and four-year program students complete the general military 
course, field training, and the professional officer course. Two-year 
program students complete an extended field training encampment 
and the professional officer course. Financial support is provided both 
by state and federal scholarships and by a subsistence allowance of 
$150 a month. 

Aerospace studies courses are open to all registered students, 
upon consent of the Department of Aerospace Studies, even if they are 
not enrolled in any of these programs and do not wish to pursue a 
commission. 

GENERAL MILITARY COURSE 

The educational program for the first two years in Air Force Aerospace 
Studies consists of AFAS 111, 112, 121, and 122. These 1-hour courses 
are designed to give students basic information on air power history 
and the role of the U.S. Air Force in the defense of the free world. All 
required aerospace studies textbooks and necessary uniforms are 
provided free. The general military course is open to all registered 
students at the University of Illinois without advance application and 
does not obligate students to the Air Force in any way. 

FIELD TRAINING 

Air Force R( )TC field training is offered during the summer months 
al selei ted Air Force bases throughout the United States. Students in 
the four-year program participate in four weeks of field training, 
usually between their sophomore and junior years. Students applying 



Council on Teacher Education 



tor entry into the two-year program must successfully complete six 
weeks ot field training prior to enrollment in the professional officer 
course ("he -\ir Force pays all expenses associated with field training. 

The major areas of Study in the tour-week field training program 
include junior officer training, aircraft and air crew orientation, career 
orientation, survival training, base functions. Air Force environment, 
and physical framing. The major areas of Study included in the six- 
week field framing program are essentially the same as those con- 
ducted at tour-week field framing plus the general military course and 
leadership laboratories 

PROFESSIONAL OFFICER COURSE 

The third and fourth years of Air Force aerospace studies instruction, 
consisting of A FAS 231, 232, 241, and 242, are designed to develop 
skills and attitudes vital to the professional officer. Students complet- 
ing the professional officer course are commissioned as officers in the 
U. S. Air Force upon college graduation. All students in the course 
receive a nontaxable subsistence allowance of $150 per month during 
the two-semester academic vear. Students wanting to enter the pro- 
gram should apply early in the spring semester of their sophomore 
year in order to begin this course the following fall semester. Final 
selection of students rests with the professor of aerospace studies. 
Each member of the course must: 

— Be a citizen of the United States. 

— Be a full-time student at the University. 

— Have at least two years remaining at the University as an under- 
graduate and/or graduate student upon entry to the program. 

— Pass an Air Force physical examination. 

— Be able to complete all requirements for commissioning before 
reaching age 26 1 /: for a flying candidate or age 30 for a nonflying 
candidate. 

— Complete summer field training (four-week or six-week). 

— Achieve a qualifying score on the Air Force Officer Qualifying 
Test. 

— Complete Rhetoric 105 or its equivalent and a college-level math- 
ematics course before graduation. 

— Execute a written agreement with the U.S. government to com- 
plete the course, accept a reserve commission in the U.S. Air Force 
upon graduation, and serve four years on active duty after gradu- 
ation. Pilot candidates agree to serve eight years, and navigators six 
years, on active duty after completion of flying training. 

— Enlist in the Air Force Obligated Reserve Section; this enlistment 
is terminated upon acceptance of a commission. 

— Possess and maintain a quality grade-point average meeting the 
requirements of the student's college. 

— Not be a conscientious objector, nor possess other disqualifying 
characteristics to a commission as established by law or the Depart- 
ment of Defense. Talk with the AFROTC recruiter to see if you 
qualify. 

LEADERSHIP LABORATORY 

The Air Force requires all qualified officer candidates pursuing a 
commission to participate in a leadership laboratory. The leadership 
laboratory is not a University course and no University credit is 
awarded for participation. 

Instruction is conducted within the framework of an organized 
cadet corps with a progression of experiences designed to develop 
each student's leadership potential. The leadership laboratory in- 
volves the study of Air Force customs and courtesies, drill and 
ceremonies, career opportunities, and the life and work of an Air Force 
junior officer. Students develop leadership in a practical, supervised 
laboratory, which typically includes field trips to Air Force installa- 
tions throughout the United States. This laboratory is restricted to 
individuals enrolled in the precommissioning programs only.

Six colleges of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign offer 
degree programs in teacher education: the Colleges of Agriculture, 
Applied Life Studies, Education, Fine and Applied Arts, Liberal Arts 
and Sciences, and the Graduate College. The Council on Teacher 
Education is responsible for the coordination of teacher education 
curricula at the Urbana-Champaign campus and serves as the liaison 
between the campus and state certification authorities. The list of 
teacher education curricula is on page 43. 

Students may consult their teacher education advisers or the 
certification officer for additional information about academic regula- 
tions and other policies affecting teacher education. Consult the 
executive director of the council for information about the Grievance 
Policy and Procedures for Students Enrolled in Certification Programs 
under the Purview of the Council on Teacher Education. 



Requirements 



ADMISSIONS 

Applicants to teacher education curricula must meet the admission 
requirements of the colleges and departments offering the chosen 
curricula. A student whose cumulative grade-point average is less 



Programs of Study 



than the stated minimum may apply for admission and will be 
considered individually on a petition basis if enrollment vacancies 
exist in the college and curriculum to which the student seeks admis- 
sion. If admitted, the student may be placed on provisional status by 
the Council on Teacher Education. 

To be in compliance with recent state legislation, all students 
entering teacher education programs must demonstrate basic profi- 
ciency in reading, mathematics, and language arts. The Council on 
Teacher Education monitors compliance with this mandate. 

Applicants are advised that certain felony convictions, enumer- 
ated in Articles 1 0-21 .9 and 21 -23a of the School Code of Illinois, prohibit 
certification or employment in public schools. Questions pertaining to 
this matter should be addressed to the certification officer. 

CONTINUATION IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

To be eligible for continuation in teacher education, candidates must 
have UIUC and cumulative grade-point averages of 3.5 (A = 5.0) or 
higher. In addition, candidates must meet grade-point requirements 
specific to their programs. The Council on Teacher Education reviews 
each student's academic progress every semester. Students who do 
not meet the grade-point average criteria will receive warning letters 
from the council advising them that their entry into student teaching 
and their receiving recommendations for certification from the Uni- 
versity are at risk. Students will be directed to their college deans for 
more information. 

In addition, students are screened just before student teaching and 
just after its completion by faculty committees that assess the overall 
record of their performance in the program. Teaching effectiveness is 
influenced not only by academic proficiency, but also by the personal 
characteristics of the teacher. Therefore, faculty members take these 
characteristics into account as they evaluate students' progress in the 
program. In addition, teaching effectiveness can be influenced by the 
teacher's health. For this reason, UIUC provides counseling and 
medical services for all students. A student wishing additional infor- 
mation about these services may make an appointment by calling or 
by visiting the council office. 

Because it is essential that counseling and medical services be 
offered as soon as the need becomes apparent, teacher education 
advisers and faculty members are asked to recommend for assistance 
or examination any student about whom they feel concern. A student 
who is recommended for assistance or examination will receive a 
written request to make an appointment to discuss the situation. It is 
a requirement of the Council on Teacher Education that a student who 
receives such a request must respond. Failure to do so will jeopardize 
the student's continuation in teacher education. During the appoint- 
ment, the student will be informed of the counseling and medical 
services available at the University. The student's use of these services 
is usually optional. In exceptional cases, however, the council may 
require a student to satisfactorily complete a mental health or physical 
examination with one of the campus services. Students who wish to 
continue in teacher education must comply with such referrals. 

STUDENT TEACHING 

Undergraduate students should apply for tentative student teaching 
assignments upon completing 55 semester hours of credit. Graduate 
students should consult with their adviser about the timing of re- 
quests for placement. Student teaching application forms may be 
obtained from the appropriate student teaching office. (Students may 
obtain referrals to the appropraite office by contacting the council's 
Clinical Experiences Services section at 333-2804.) A student seeking 
placement in student teaching should contact the appropriate office of 
student teaching no later than the October 1 of the academic year 
preceding the desired placement to determine departmental dead- 
lines and meeting dates. Although departments may set earlier dead- 
l.ii- . Mi- I, iii i i l.i ii-li.r ,i|> pin ,i I ion will be the last day of classes for the 
estei Students who apply after their departments' deadlines 
cannot be guaranteed a student teaching assignment during the next 
academic year A student who will not be on campus during the fall 
enroll in educational practice (student 

teaching cl I year, should secure an application 

form from hi or her of I f student te,,t lung belon leaving campus. 

On completion of 7S or more semester hours, a student who has 

submitted an application will receive a student teaching assignment

ind 100 hours of early field experience, (2) has 

UlUCandcum i.0) or higher, 

n I,, required foi his or hei 



program, and (4) has received a recommendation for placement in 
student teaching from the appropriate faculty committee. 

Only those students officially registered in teacher education 
curricula are eligible for student teaching placements. Students who 
are on academic or disciplinary probation will not be permitted to 
student teach. Graduate students pursuing teacher certification through 
completion of undergraduate program requirements are required to 
petition the council for permission to student teach. The council 
reserves the right to deny student teaching placement to students 
whose performance in course work or in early field experiences has 
been judged to be unsatisfactory by professional standards, including 
scholarship, ethics, and responsibility, as determined by the faculty 
and staff in consultation with cooperating school personnel. Satisfac- 
tory performance is not based solely on grades. 

Students in teacher education should anticipate and plan for 
student teaching assignments off campus. For most students, addi- 
tional expense will be incurred during the semester in which student 
teaching is scheduled. Students cannot be guaranteed assignments in 
local schools. Attempts will be made to honor such requests; however, 
this is not always possible, because the number of available sites is 
limited. 

Students are expected to complete all field experiences, including 
student teaching, at UIUC. Under extenuating circumstances, a stu- 
dent who wishes to complete student teaching through another 
university, yet receive a UIUC degree and recommendation for certi- 
fication, must secure the prior approval of his or her adviser, college, 
and the Council on Teacher Education via petition. The petition must 
be supported by verification from the other university that it will 
accept the student as a student teacher and will comply with all 
Council on Teacher Education requirements. Approvals of such ar- 
rangements are infrequent, and students should expect to incur 
additional costs. Consult the executive or associate director of the 
council for additional information. 

Candidates for certification as administrators or school social 
workers should consult with their advisers regarding procedures for 
clinical placement. 

TEACHER CERTIFICATION 

A student who completes all of the course work and other require- 
ments in a program approved for purposes of certification by the 
Illinois State Board of Education is entitled to receive the recommen- 
dation of the University for the appropriate certificate, provided the 
candidate (1) is a U.S. citizen or legally present and authorized to 
work, is of good character and in good health, and is at least nineteen 
years of age; (2) is recommended for certification by his or her program 
coordinator or department chairperson on the basis of criteria ap- 
proved by the council; (3) has UIUC and cumulative grade-point 
averages of 3.5 (A = 5.0) or higher; and (4) has the minimum grade- 
point average required in his or her program. 

In some instances a student may be denied a recommendation for 
certification but be granted a degree by his or her college. A student 
who believes that the recommendation for certification has been 
withheld unjustly may seek redress through the grievance policy 
established by the Council on Teacher Education. A copy of the policy 
and the allied procedures may be obtained from the executive director 
of the council. 

Students who enroll in advanced foreign language, chemistry, or 
mathematics courses as a result of performance on a placement 
examination are often eligible to receive prerequisite credit for teacher 
certification purposes only. A student who is qualified to receive 
prerequisite credit and who has declared one of these areas as his or 
her major or minor should consult his or her teacher education 
adviser. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Council on Teacher Education has adopted a common general 
education core for all undergraduate students pursuing certification 
in secondary (grades six through twelve) and special (grades kinder- 
garten through twelve) programs. Students are required to complete 
ill. , ourse work specified in the council plan. Courses within the 
teaching major or minor may be used to satisfy general education 
requirements, provided they appear on the council list of approved 
courses, which is available from advisers, college offices, and the 
council office. Students should consult with their advisers to deter- 
mine the appropriate course work to satisfy the requirements. 

Students in UIUC undergraduate programs leading to secondary 
and special certification will be expected to complete the following 
requirements,

TEACHER CERTIFICATION TESTS 

All applicants for certification as teachers, school administrators, and 
school service personnel must pass tests mandated by the Illinois State 
Board of Education as a condition for certification. An applicant must 
pass a test in basic skills (reading, writing, grammar, and mathemat- 
ics) and a separate test in his or her major area. For further information, 
contact the certification officer. 

TIME LIMIT ON CERTIFICATION 

Because certification requirements are subject to change as a result of 
new mandates from the Illinois State Teacher Certification Board and 
the Illinois General Assembly, the University is unable to guarantee a 
recommendation for certification to anyone who applies for certifica- 
tion later than one year after graduation from an approved program. 
A student completing an approved program is urged to apply for 
certification during his or her last term on campus. Applications for 
certification are available in the council office. 

BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION OF APPLICANTS FOR 
EMPLOYMENT 

Each applicant for employment in a school district in Illinois is 
required to authorize the employing school district to initiate a crimi- 
nal background check. A school district may employ a person only 
after a background check has been initiated and may not knowingly 
employ a person who has been convicted of a felony or of attempting 
to commit certain offenses enumerated in The School Code of Illinois. 
Although the University plays no role in this criminal background 
check, students planning to teach in Illinois should be aware of this 
legislated requirement. 

Special Services

Curricula 

A student seeking certification must complete the requirements of 
both his or her chosen curriculum and the Council on Teacher Educa- 
tion. Teacher education curricula and the colleges that offer them are 
listed below. All teacher education curricula have been approved by 
the Illinois State Board of Education. 

Students are advised that certification requirements may be al- 
tered at any time by the State Teacher Certification Board or the 
legislature. In such cases, students may be compelled to satisfy the 
new requirements to qualify for the University's recommendation for 
certification. Proposals currently before the Illinois State Board of 
Education would require additional course work to teach middle 
grades 6 through 8 after June 30, 1996, and foreign languages in grades 
9 through 12 after June 30, 1997.

Situated in one of the world's richest agricultural regions, the College 
of Agriculture has a long history in scholarship, professional educa- 
tion, and career preparation in agricultural and food sciences and their 
relationship to natural resources and the environment. As the land- 
grant agricultural institution for the state of Illinois, the college traces 
its heritage of public service to the enrollment of the first agriculture 
student at the Illinois Industrial University in 1868. Undergraduate 
students in the college can choose from among fourteen curricula and 
numerous study options in eight college departments, with more than 
450 courses available in a broad range of agricultural, human ecology 
and environmentally related disciplines. Several cooperative pro- 
grams with other colleges on campus exist and individualized pro- 
grams of study may be designed to meet the student's particular 
educational needs, academic interests, and career goals. 

Extensive farms, field sites, greenhouses, laboratories, and other 
research facilities are conveniently located on the Urbana-Champaign 
campus, affording excellent opportunities for college students to gain 
"hands-on" experience with on-going studies in agriculture, child 
development, dietetics, food processing, and many other fields. The 
college maintains a large collection of books, periodicals, audiovisu- 
al, and other educational resources in its Agriculture and Home 
Economics Libraries; and microcomputers, data-processing equip- 
ment, and access to the campuswide mainframe computer system are 
available to supplement and enrich classroom studies. 

The College of Agriculture is recognized nationally and interna- 
tionally for its distinguished faculty, innovative programs of study, 
and pioneering achievements in teaching, basic and applied research, 
extension education, and international programs. The college will 
soon complete a major building program designed to enhance its 
position of national leadership in the agricultural, human, and envi- 
ronmental sciences. State-of-the-art facilities, including some that are 
under construction and those completed within the past five years, 
add greatly to the teaching and research capabilities of the college, 
particularly in the challenging new fields of biotechnology and ge- 
netic engineering. A new $30-million Plant and Animal Biotechnology 
Laboratory was dedicated in 1991. A $17.5-million Animal Sciences 
Laboratory construction and remodeling project was completed in 
1993, and extensive remodeling has been completed in the Agricul- 
tural Bioprocess Laboratory, the National Soybean Research Labora- 
tory, and other college facilities. Plans are underway to construct a 
new library, computer center, and alumni center for use by students, 
faculty, and alumni. 

The College of Agriculture offers career preparation and educa- 
tion in several fields of biological, physical, and social sciences. The 
academic units and curricula offerings are listed in the following 
section.

The agricultural education program, administered through the 
Office of Agricultural Communications and Education, allows stu- 
dents to follow one or more of the three specialty options: science and 
management, horticulture and natural resources, and agricultural 
mechanization. Upon successful completion of an option in the agri- 
cultural education major, a student is qualified for an Illinois second- 
ary teaching certificate and for employment in the Cooperative Exten- 
sion Service and in many agribusiness fields. 

The Department of Agricultural Engineering offers courses in 
agricultural engineering and agricultural mechanization. The agricul- 
tural engineering courses cover the principles of engineering science 
and design used to solve a broad spectrum of engineering problems 
related to agriculture. Areas of specialization include food and pro- 
cess engineering, off-road equipment design, bioenvironmental engi- 
neering of plant and animal facilities, and the protection of soil and 
water resources and of soil and water quality. The agricultural mecha- 
nization courses cover agricultural technology and agribusiness man- 
agement and focus on such technical specialities as machinery, elec- 
tronics, computers, automatic controls, materials handling, buildings, 
waste management, grain and food processing, ventilation and heat- 
ing, and soil conservation. 

The Department of Agronomy offers courses in both crops and 
soils. Instruction includes courses in plant breeding and genetics; 
biotechnology and genetic engineering; crop evaluation; crop protec- 
tion; production and evaluation of cereals, corn, soybeans, and forage 
crops; crop physiology; design of field experiments; weeds and their 
control; the origin and development of soils; land appraisals; soil 
conservation; soil chemistry; soil physics; soil fertility and fertilizer 
use; soil management; and soil microbiology. A special option in crop 
protection is available to students interested in a broad, comprehen- 
sive approach to controlling diseases, weeds, and insects, plus manag- 
ing cultural practices to maximize yields. An option in agroecology 
addresses ecologically based management of cropping systems, stew- 
ardship of the environment, and substantial food production systems. 

The Department of Animal Sciences offers courses in the areas of 
animal evaluation, behavior, genetics, nutrition, physiology, meat 
science, and other courses related to the application of scientific 
principles to animal agriculture. Courses involve studies with beef 
and dairy cattle, horses, poultry, sheep, swine, and companion 
animals. 

The Department of Food Science offers courses in the application 
of biology, engineering, chemistry, physics, microbiology, and nutri- 
tion to the processing, formulation, packaging, and distribution of 
food. Two undergraduate curricula, food science and food industry, 
are offered. 

The Department of Forestry curriculum offers options in forest 
science and wood products. The forest science option prepares stu- 
dents for all phases of the management of forest properties (private or 
public, large or small) for the production of valuable wood products 
and for watershed protection, wildlife habitat, recreational enjoy- 
ment, and other benefits. The wood products option is concerned with 
the properties of wood as a raw material and its manufacture into 
useful products. 

Courses in the Department of Horticulture provide instruction in 
floriculture, landscape horticulture, turf, pomology, vegetable crops, 
and subjects common to all these divisions, such as crop production, 
plant propogation, plant genetics, plant materials, plant anatomy and 
morphology, and the physiology and ecology of horticulture plants, 
as well as special problems in experimental horticulture. Courses 
related to cultural and business management are additional offerings. 

The courses offered by the Department of Plant Pathology are 
designed to prepare students for graduate work in plant pathology 
and to provide supplementary training for students specializing in 
related fields such as agronomy, food science, forestry, horticulture, 
and plant protection. 

SCHOOL OF HUMAN RESOURCES AND FAMILY STUDIES 

The School of Human Resources and Family Studies is in the College 
of Agriculture. At the time it was established in 1974, the school 
incorporated the former Department of Home Economics, which had 
been in existence since 1 874. Today the school contains three divisions 
and offers the following programs: consumer sciences (consumer 
r, on, nines, textiles and apparel, marketing of textiles and apparel); 
foods and nutrition (dietetics, foods and nutrition, foods in business, 

restauranl managment); and human development and family studies.

other institutions, and a grade-point average of not less than 3.0 in all 
courses taken at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 

STATEMENT ON ACADEMIC PROGRESS 

In addition to maintaining prescribed academic performance levels, a 
student in the College of Agriculture is also expected to make progress 
in courses required in his or her academic major. Each student is 
required to have at least one College of Agriculture course in the 
program each semester, except in cases in which the specific curricu- 
lum does not make that desirable. Students not complying will be 
denied additional enrollment. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The UIUC senate adopted a revised set of general education require- 
ments in 1989. The eight categories included in the approved docu- 
ment included English composition, quantitative reasoning, foreign 
language, natural sciences, humanities and the arts, social and behav- 
ioral sciences, cultural studies, and perspectives on women and 
gender. Because of budgetary considerations, it has not been possible 
to implement all categories immediately. As of August 1994, the 
following categories with implementation guidelines for College of 
Agriculture students have been adopted: 



A. English composition 

(1) Composition I. This requirement may be fulfilled by the 
satisfactory completion of one of the following selections or an 
equivalent: RHET 105; RHET108;RHET 100, 101, and 102; RHET 
103 and 104; SPCOM 111 and 112; or ESL 114 and 115. 

(2) Composition II. This requirement is met by completing an 
approved writing-intensive course. 1 

B. Quantitative reasoning 

The quantitative reasoning requirement for College of Agricul- 
ture students must be completed with a college-level mathemat- 
ics course. Students should consult the requirements for the 
specific academic program to identify the appropriate course. 

Although not implemented from the 1989 guidelines, the follow- 
ing additonal general education categories remain in place from 
former campus general education guidelines. 
— Humanities— 6 semester hours' 
— Social science — 6 semester hours' 
— Natural science — 6 semester hours chosen from biological science 

and physical science categories' 



I. Student should consult the 1994-96 College of Agriculture Student Handbook for 
current listings of acceptable courses within each category. 



COURSE PLACEMENT 

All students admitted to the College of Agriculture are required to 
complete mathematics, chemistry, English, and foreign language tests 
during the precollege testing program. 

Mathematics: All students in a College of Agriculture curriculum 
who entered college in the fall 1992 semester and beyond are subject 
to campus quantitative reasoning requirements. Although mathemat- 
ics requirements vary by curricula, students are required to take at 
least one college-level mathematics course beyond college algebra 
and trigonometry. Based on their performance on the mathematics 
placement test, some students may be encouraged to take a college 
algebra course for no graduation credit prior to enrollment in the 
upper-level course. 

Chemistry: To take CHEM 101, a student must have a satisfactory 
score on the Chemistry Placement Test and a mathematics placement 
score that demonstrates competency beyond college algebra. Stu- 
dents who have not had high school chemistry or who do not score 
high enough on the Chemistry Placement Test must take CHEM 100 
before taking CHEM 101. 

English: Minimum English requirements in all College of Agriculture 
curricula include a semester of composition, a semester of public 
speaking, and a semester of advanced writing. Freshman students 
will fulfill the first two parts of the requirement by completing RHET 
1 05 — Principles of Composition and SPCOM 101 — Principles of Effec- 
tive Speaking; or SPCOM 111 and 112 — Verbal Communication. 

Foreign Language: Foreign language is not a graduation requirement 
in the College of Agriculture. However, the foreign language place- 
ment test is required in case students elect to continue study in that 
language for elective credit.

Curricula 



CORE CURRICULUM IN AGRICULTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture 

This is a core curriculum in that it provides for a common core 
program for the first two years. A student who desires an agriculture 
curriculum but is uncertain as to a specific major is encouraged to 
select this curriculum. All corecurriculum students must select majors 
by the start of the junior year. The core curriculum is similar to the first 
two years of the program for students majoring in agricultural eco- 
nomics, agricultural mechanization, agronomy, animal sciences, and 
horticulture. A student interested in a specialized agriculture curricu- 
lum (see pages 54 through 63) is encouraged to enter directly into that 
program as a freshman. 

The core program includes a foundation of general education 
courses. In addition, the student must choose from among several 
introductory agriculture courses. These are used to fulfill a graduation 
requirement but also provide an excellent opportunity for the student 
to explore the various curricular options within the college in prepa- 
ration for selecting a specific major. 

Upon completion of all requirements of this curriculum, with an 
approved major and a minimum of 126 hours of credit, the student is 
awarded the degree of bachelor of science in agriculture.

ration is possible by selection of course alternatives within required 
groups of courses and in elective courses. Examples of concentration 
areas are agribusiness management, agricultural finance, agricultural 
marketing and price analysis, farm management, international agri- 
cultural development, natural resource economics, agricultural and 
food policy, and rural sociology. These interest areas are not mutually 
exclusive, and they may be combined in many ways to fit the needs 
and interests of the student. Course selections recommended for these 
concentration areas are given in the College of Agriculture Student 
Handbook. 

A large number of courses offered by the College of Commerce and 
Business Administration are recommended for students in specific 
agricultural economics concentrations. Two special programs are 
available for students with specific business interests in ( 1 ) the agricul- 
tural economics/accountancy program in which the agricultural eco- 
nomics graduate is eligible to sit for the certified public accountant 
examination at the end of the undergraduate degree; and (2) the five- 
year B.S. in agriculture/M.B. A. degree program. Information on both 
programs is available from the Department of Agricultural Econom- 
ics.

MAJOR IN AGRONOMY 

The major in agronomy is designed for students with an interest in 
agronomic crops or soils. The crops option prepares students for 
careers in crop production and marketing, crop systems management, 
plant breeding, biotechnology, and seed merchandising. The soils 
option is designed for students having an interest in soil management 
and conservation, soil survey, water quality, and plant nutrient mer- 
chandising. The crop protection option provides a broad selection of 
courses in crops and soils, plant diseases, insects and weeds, the 
physical sciences, and communications. The agroecology option ad- 
dresses ecologically based management of cropping systems, stew- 
ardship of the environment, and sustainable food production sys- 
tems. The latter two options are designed to prepare students for 
careers in integrated pest management, crop consulting, agrichemical 
management, and merchandising. Students who wish to pursue 
graduate work can supplement the major with suitable choices of 
electives, or they may select the agricultural science major.

MAJOR IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agriculture 

The primary purpose of the major in agricultural education is to 
prepare students to teach agriculture in high schools that offer agricul- 
tural education programs and to work in informal teaching settings 
such as the Cooperative Extension Service, agribusiness, and other 
community and governmental agencies. Students may earn a dual 
major in agricultural education and one of 19 other majors in the 
College of Agriculture. In addition to the educational experience 
outlined in this curriculum, the state of Illinois certification require- 
ments call for a minimum of one year or 2,000 hours of employment 
experience in agriculture. Students completing the teacher certifica- 
tion program will be automatically eligible for dual certification in 
agriculture and general science. Students are advised that additional 
course work may be necessary to teach middle grades 6 through 8 after 
June 30, 1996. Consult the certification officer in 110 Education Build- 
ing for additional information. 

A minimum of 130 hours of credit is required for graduation. A

PROGRAM IN PREPROFESSIONAL VETERINARY 
MEDICINE 

Most students wishing to complete the preprofessional requirements 
for veterinary' medicine in the College of Agriculture follow Option 1 
of the agricultural science major, or the animal sciences major-science 
option. 

Because of the competition for admission, the student should plan 
a bachelor's degree program that will prepare him or her for a career 
alternative should admission to the professional program not be 
obtained. Recently there have been approximately two qualified 
applicants for each space available in the entering class in veterinary 
medicine. The mean grade-point average of admitted students was 
slightly above 4.5 (A = 5.0). Specific information about veterinary 
medicine, including admission requirements, can be found on page 
167.

Undergraduate Programs 



study of humans as physically active organisms, with special refer- 
ence to human performance and the development of motor skills 
together with the impact that physical activity has on individuals 
throughout their lives. 

Undergraduate kinesiology programs prepare students for ca- 
reers in such diverse fields as teaching, sales, coaching, fitness and 
wellness, and athletic training. Many students use their undergradu- 
ate training to continue their education at graduate or professional 
schools in physical therapy, medicine, occupational therapy, 
biobehavioral health, law, biomechanics, exercise physiology, sport 
and exercise psychology, motor control, and other related disciplines. 

The department offers programs that may lead to Illinois state 
certification to teach physical education in grades kindergarten through 
twelve, and six through twelve. It offers a teacher education minor in 
physical education, an athletic training emphasis (NATA approved), 
and a sport coaching endorsement. 

LEISURE STUDIES 

Program Management. Prepares students to design, implement, and 
manage leisure service delivery systems. Includes career opportuni- 
ties in public recreation systems, commercial and resort agencies, 
sports management, tourism management, and park and natural 
resource management. 

SPEECH AND HEARING SCIENCE 

The study of speech-langauge pathology and audiology which pre- 
pares students for entrance into professional training at the graduate 
level. Career opportunities include direct services to individuals with 
disabilities, as well as positions in business, research laboratories, 
government agencies, and university settings.

Semesters of Course Work 






Recommended 



"Beginning freshmen will be at a disadvantage if they have not completed at least one 
year each of high school biology and high school chemistrv. 

Once high school course work requirements are fulfilled, qualifi- 
cations for admission are primarily determined by a combination of 
class rank at the end of the junior year with the highest ACT or SAT test 
scoreon file at the time of theadmission decision. These two factors are 
used to predict an applicant's likelihood of academic success, and one 
may help to offset the other. For example, an applicant may compen- 
sate for a low test score with a high class rank. 

Transfer applicants must have attained junior standing (60 semes- 
ter hours of transferable credit) by the desired date of entry. Lower- 
division transfer students (less than 60 semester hours) must petition 
tor admission Admission is competitive, based upon cumulative 
grade-point average. The minimum transfer GPA requirement for the 
5.5 (A = 5.0).

CURRICULUM IN COMMUNITY HEALTH 

The department offers a bachelor of science degree in community 
health with areas of concentration in health education and health 
planning and administration. A minor in gerontology is also avail- 
able. Students interested in professional health careers will find these 
programs compatible with those goals. 

The purpose of the undergraduate program is to provide students 
with a broad University general education and a department core of 
courses that focuses on health behavior and factors that affect the 
health of communities. The goal is to prepare students for entry-level 
positions in a variety of settings, both public and private, that utilize 
health education processes or health information planning. 

A total of 128 hours is required for the degree. This includes an 8- 
credit-hour internship that is completed in the senior year in a setting 
related to the student's interest.

Institute of Aviation 



Willard Airport 
One Willard Road 
Savoy, IL 61874 

The Institute of Aviation is responsible for the promotion and corre- 
lation of education and research activities related to aviation at the 
University. Its director has the advice and assistance of an executive 
committee. The institute holds Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) 
Airman Examining (Pilot) Agency Certificate Number 1, which per- 
mits it to issue pilot certificates and ratings to its graduates on behalf 
of the FAA. A professional pilot curriculum includes training from the 
private pilot level to the airline-transport pilot level. 

Typically, new freshmen are accepted for admission only for the 
fall semester, but a few students are accepted for the spring semester. 
Transfer to the Institute of Aviation from within the University may be 
accomplished as space permits. 

A graduating institute student may transfer to any degree-grant- 
ing division of the University to complete requirements for a degree 
in that division. This may require from four to six additional semes- 
ters. A University student outside the Institute of Aviation may elect 
flight courses with the permission of his or her department and the 
permission of the Institute of Aviation. 

Special fees ranging from $943 to $4,364 are charged for a course 
involving flight training in addition to the estimated costs listed on 
page 20. These fees are subject to change as operating costs change. 

The institute's Aviation Research Laboratory conducts interdisci- 
plinary research in many areas related to flight. The institute manages 
Willard Airport, located six miles southwest of the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. The airport also provides the University and the 
community with excellent air transportation facilities. 

Requirements 

ADMISSIONS 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as

(217) 333-2740 

The purpose of the College of Commerce and Business Administra- 
tion is to provide an educational experience that will help students 
develop their potential for leadership and service in business, govern- 
ment, teaching, and research. The undergraduate curricula provide a 
study of the basic aspects of business and preparation for careers in 
fields such as accounting, business management, banking, insurance, 
and marketing. Students should, however, expect to serve apprentice- 
ships in the fields they enter if they aspire to higher positions. 

The curricula, leading to the bachelor of science degrees in the 
various degree programs in business, are based on four years of 
college work. Students are required to elect courses in other colleges 
of the University, including mathematics, rhetoric, humanities and 
the arts, speech, and natural and behavioral sciences, and to secure as 
liberal an education as possible to avoid the narrowing effects of 
overspecialization. Through a cooperative arrangement with the Col- 
lege of Liberal Arts and Sciences, students in that college may major 
in economics or finance. 

The College of Commerce and Business Administration offers 
graduate and professional programs to the student with a bachelor's 
degree in one of the areas of business and economics, or in a nonbusiness 
area such as liberal arts, science, or engineering. Detailed information 
on graduate programs may be obtained from the Graduate College. 

Departments and Curricula 

Undergraduate instruction in the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration is organized under the Departments of Accountancy, 
Business Administration, Economics, and Finance. Each of these 
departments offers courses that provide one or more curricula that a 
student may elect. These curricula lead to bachelor of science degrees 
in the various fields of study in the college and are designed to 
encourage each student to develop fully his or her intellectual 
capacity. 

Requirements 



ADMISSION 

Applicants must meet general University requirements as well as 
those specified by the College of Commerce and Business 
Administration. 



College of Commerce and Business Administration 
69 



Students transferring from other colleges will not be excused from 
die entrance requirements unless they have demonstrated profu iency 
in the areas in which they are defic ienl 

MATHEMATICS PLACEMENT TEST 

Students are required to take the Mathematics Placement Test before 
registering in the college. The results ol the test .ire used to place 
students in MATH 1 12 or to exempt them from college algebra and 
allow them to enroll in MAT! 1 1 2? or the equivalent, which is required 
tor graduation. 

GRADUATION 

Students in the College of Commerce and Business Administration 
who meet the University's requirements with reference to registra- 
tion, residence, and fees and who maintain satisfactory scholastic 
records in the college are awarded degrees appropriate to their 
curricula. 

Each candidate for a degree must have a 3.0 (A = 5.0) grade-point 
average or above for all courses counted toward graduation, a 3.0 
grade-point average or above for all courses taken at this University, 
a 3.0 grade- point average or above tor all courses taken in the major or 
field of concentration, and a 3.0 grade-point average or above for 
courses taken in the major or field of concentration at this University. 

Each student may select only one major or field of concentration. 

Students are responsible for meeting the requirements for gradu- 
ation. Therefore, students should familiarize themselves with the 
requirements listed in this catalog and other information in the Office 
of Undergraduate Affairs, 214 David Kinley Hall, and should refer to 
them each time they plan their programs. 

MATHEMATICS REQUIREMENT 

Any one of the sequences described below meets the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration requirement. A new student 
need only select which mathematics sequence to enter. Decisions on 
how far to go in a sequence can be made later as the student gains 
experience and firms up career objectives. 

The most appropriate mathematics sequence depends on the 
student's background, interest, motivation, and objectives. Back- 
ground can be evaluated in terms of mathematics courses already 
completed and the student's score on the Mathematics Placement 
Test. Interest, motivation, and objectives must be determined by the 
student. The three sequences open to the student are 

— MATH 135. A demanding course requiring a previous analytic 
geometry course. It should be chosen by students whose interests 
and objectives require strong mathematics. 

— MATH 120 and 130. This sequence is appropriate for students 
whose background is good but who have not had analytic geom- 
etry or who prefer a somewhat less demanding sequence. 

— MATH 125 and 134. This sequence provides students with a good 
background, but because the pace is slower, it may not sufficiently 
challenge very good or previously well-prepared students. 

RESIDENCY 

Students must spend either the first three years, earning not fewer 
than 90 semester hours, or the last year (two semesters, or the equiva- 
lent), earning not fewer than 30 semester hours, in residence on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus, uninterrupted by any work at another 
institution. 

Transfer students from community or junior colleges must, after 
attaining junior standing, earn at the University of Illinois or another 
approved four-year institution at least 60 semester hours acceptable 
toward their degree. 

Special Programs 



HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors, designated on diplomas, are awarded to superior students as 
follows: for graduation with honors, a minimum grade- point average 
of 4.5 (A = 5.0) in all courses accepted toward the student's degree; for 
graduation with high honors, a minimum grade-point average of 4.75 
in all courses accepted toward the degree; and for graduation with 
highest honors, a minimum grade-point average of 4.90 in all courses 
accepted toward the degree. To qualify for graduation honors, trans- 
fer students' UIUC and total cumulative grade-point averages must 
qualify.

CURRICULUM IN ACCOUNTANCY 



For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Accountancy 
In i'i « momically advanced societies, accounting plays an increasingly 
important role As organizations and societies grow in size and 
complexity, there is a growing need for relevant and reliable quanti- 
tative information about their progress and status. This information is 
an important aid to business managers, investors, and others in (1) 
planning decisions re iga rd i ng t he use of resources (financial, physical, 
and human); (2) controlling dei isions regarding actions to accomplish 
the plan ; and I I) • aluating da i dons regarding the actual perfor- 
mance. The accountant assists m identifying the information appro- 
pnate lor a pa rt u u la rde ( ision, part u i pates in the accumulation of this 
information, and is responsible lor reporting and interpreting it. 
Providing sui li infi U matil IT 18 important to those who manage eeo- 

ai tivity as well as to those interested in the results, Accountants 
perform tins funi in both business and nonbusiness organiza- 
tions 

' losely allied to accounting are the fields of information systems, 

auditing, and taxation Each field requires additional education. Ac- 

ho pe ialize in iiiIomh.iIi.hi systems arei on< emed with 

terns thai provide the information 

■■ i ialize in auditing an tcerned with verifying 



the propriety of the information and may attest to its reliability in 
reports accompanying those issued by management of their account- 
ability for the use of resources. Accountants who specialize in taxation 
assist in tax planning, return preparation, and the development of 
regulations. These accountants are employed inside organizations, by 
governmental units, and by independent public accounting firms. 

Study in accountancy is offered in seven areas: financial account- 
ing, managerial accounting, international accounting, not-for-profit 
accounting, taxation, information systems, and auditing. Courses are 
available in each of these areas at both the undergraduate and gradu- 
ate levels. 

Minimum requirements for the bachelor of science degree in 
accountancy are ACCY 211, 221, 311, and 331; and three additional 
accountancy courses. One or more acceptable sections of ACCY 199 
totaling three or more hours may count as one of these additional 
courses. Accountancy courses may not be taken on a credit-no credit 
basis unless the degree requirements have been satisfied . A limit of 33 
hours of accountancy courses may be counted toward the bachelor of 
science degree in accountancy. 

CURRICULUM IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Business 
Administration 

The Department of Business Administration offers eight separate 
undergraduate concentrations: marketing, organizational adminis- 
tration, production, management science, industrial distribution man- 
agement, management information systems, entrepreneurship, and 
food and agribusiness management. In addition, a new concentration 
in international business is in the approval process. 

Marketing encompasses those business activities directly related 
to the process of placing meaningful assortments of goods and ser- 
vices in the hands of the consumer. The marketing student is con- 
cerned with the efficient performance of marketing activities and with 
their effective coordination with the other operations of the firm. 
Organizational administration is concerned primarily with the effec- 
tive utilization of human resources within the business organization. 
Attention is focused on the organization as a social system and the 
forces that affect this system, such as the behavior of individuals and 
groups, economic conditions, and technology. Production and opera- 
tions management is concerned primarily with the efficient utilization 
of the organization's material resources. Attention is focused on the 
design and improvement of productive capacity and the coordination 
of the productive process with other system activities. The industrial 
distribution management concentration stresses the distribution and 
logistics function in the industrial sector of the economy, with particu- 
lar reference to the industrial distributor. Problems in the manage- 
ment of industrial distribution businesses, both as suppliers to and 
customers of manufacturers and other businesses, receive special 
attention. The concentration in management information systems 
permits students to acquire the skills necessary as systems analysts to 
analyze management's needs for information and identify efficient 
and effective methods to provide management with such informa- 
tion. Such analysts have played an increasingly important role in 
business and government over the past twenty years. Entrepreneur- 
ship is the study of the emerging and rapidly growing firm. It is 
intended for students who hope to start and own their own busi- 
nesses. The concentration in food and agribusiness management 
emphasizes management in one of the most challenging and impor- 
tant sectors in the U.S. and world economies. Food and agribusiness 
executives will need to be trained to apply innovative management 
thinking to deal with technological change, global business ventures, 
and changing food habits and tastes among consumers. 

Requirements for the degree are B ADM 321 — Individual Behavior 
in Organizations, or B ADM 322 — Group Processes in the Organiza- 
tion, or B ADM 323 — Organizational Design and Environment; B

Beyond the required courses in composition, general education, 
the business core and major, at least 1 6 elective hours must be selected 
from outside business administration, accountancy, or finance (10 
hours for students majoring in industrial distribution management). 

CURRICULUM IN ECONOMICS 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Economics 

Economics has been described as the study of how people use limited 
resources to produce various commodities and to distribute them to 
members of society for their consumption. Accordingly, the econo- 
mist is concerned with what is produced, how goods and services are 
distributed, the organization of industries, the labor supply and its 
use, international trade, the production and distribution of national 
income and wealth, government finance, and the use and conserva- 
tion of land and natural resources. 

The student majoring in economics establishes a core of knowl- 
edge by taking courses in intermediate theory and statistics. The 
student may then specialize by selecting course work in an area such 
as taxation and government finance, international economics, eco- 
nomic history, labor economics, economic development, urban and 
regional economics, quantitative economics, or government and eco- 
nomic activity. 

An economics major is well prepared for a broad range of profes- 
sional careers. Economics provides excellent training for further study 
in an M.B.A. or law program or for graduate work in areas such as 
economics, planning and administration, or policy studies. Career 
opportunities include management positions in business, industry, 
and government; teaching and administrative positions in colleges 
and universities; and research positions in private and public institu- 
tions. 

Requirements for the degree include ECON 301 and 12 additional 
hours in economics at the 200- or 300-level, excluding ECON 295, 299, 



Undergraduate Programs 



and 300. Students with strong mathematics backgrounds or interest in 
further work in economics are advised (but not required) to fulfill the 
college mathematics requirement with MATH 120 and 130 or MATH 
135, and to take additional training in courses such as MATH 242 or 
245 and MATH 315. 

Courses used to fill major requirements may not be taken on a 
credit-no credit basis. 

CURRICULUM IN FINANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Finance 

The field of finance is primarily concerned with the acquisition and 
management of funds by business firms, governments, and individu- 
als. A new business, for example, must secure sufficient funds to 
initiate and maintain operations until the cash flow from sales is great 
enough to maintain capital requirements. An established business 
seeks financial advice when considering the purchase of new equip- 
ment, the selection of a new plant location, or the expansion of present 
facilities. Business policy decisions that result in changes in the capital 
structure of the business are of special importance to finance. 

A student who majors in finance may specialize in finance, invest- 
ment, and financial institutions and markets; insurance and risk 
management; or real estate and urban land economics. 

The study of finance is designed to provide the student with both 
the theoretical background and the analytical tools required to make 
effective judgments in finance. Many students select careers in busi- 
ness financial management, commercial and investment banking, 
government finance, insurance, and real estate.

College of Communications

Urbana, IL 61801

For students with two years of college and a commitment to a career 
in communications, the < !ollege oi < lOmmunications offers an addi- 
tion,! I two years oi e( 1 1 nation leading to bachelor of science degrees in 
advertising, in journalism, and in media studies. 



College of Communications 



Through its professional programs, the college strives to give 
students in advertising and journalism broad career competence in 
their chosen fields ol communications, while ensuring that they 
acquire solid backgrounds in the social sciences and humanities. Its 
premise is that students need an understanding of people and the 
world they live in it they are to communicate effectively through print 
and electronic media 

Through its non-professional media studies program, the college 
otters students the opportunity to study, analyze, and critique mod- 
ern communications media, again with a firm foundation in the social 
sciences and humanities. 

The college has modern equipment and facilities for teaching 
future communications practitioners — reporting, editing, graphic arts, 
and photojournalism laboratories, in addition to editing studios for 
radio and television production and a well-equipped stuciio for broad- 
cast news instruction. The Communications Library is generally rec- 
ognized as one of the best in the nation. The departments of advertis- 
ing and journalism maintain job placement services for their students. 

The college is also the supervising administrative unit for the 
University Broadcasting Division (WILL-AM, -FM, and -TV) and the 
Institute of Communications Research, where the media studies pro- 
gram is administered. 

Instruction in journalism at the University was begun in 1902 as 
part of the course offering in rhetoric and was organized as a division 
of the Department of English in 1916. The School of Journalism was 
established in 1927 as a separate unit. In 1950, it became the School of 
Journalism and Communications with divisions of journalism, adver- 
tising, and radio, the last of which later added instruction in television. 
In 1957 the school was elevated to college status, and two years later 
the college's three divisions were redesignated as departments. The 
present name — College of Communications — was adopted in 1968. 

Departments and Curricula 

Through its Departments of Advertising and Journalism, the college, 
which has been accredited by the American Council on Education for 
Journalism and Mass Communication, offers professional education 
in three sequences — advertising, news-editorial journalism, and broad- 
cast journalism. A bachelor of science degree is also offered in media 
studies through the Institute of Communications Research. 

The Department of Advertising supervises work in the advertising 
curriculum for students expecting to enter advertising agencies or the 
advertising departments of companies, communications media, in- 
dustrial organizations, or retail stores. The department aims to edu- 
cate students to become analytical, flexible, and creative professionals 
who are able to deal with current and future advertising problems. 

The Department of Journalism seeks to prepare students for varied 
and long-term careers in print and electronic journalism. The primary 
professional aim of the news-editorial and broadcast sequences is to 
train students as public affairs reporters by providing them with the 
skills, knowledge, and understanding required for success as journal- 
ists. The department aims to prepare broadly educated professionals 
who will eventually assume decision-making and leadership roles. 

The Institute of Communications Research, through the media 
studies curriculum, gives students concentrated formal academic 
study in the development of the communications media and their 
underlying technologies. 

The Departments of Advertising and Journalism offer graduate 
programs leading to master of science degrees in advertising and in 
journalism. The college offers an interdisciplinary program leading to 
the doctor of philosophy in communications under the direction of the 
Institute of Communications Research. 

Requirements 

ADMISSION 

For admission to the College of Communications, a student must 
complete 60 semester hours of acceptable undergraduate college 
work and present a grade-point average of at least 4.0 (A = 5.0) and 
evidence of interest in the practice and/or study of communications. 
The competitive grade-point average in recent years has been higher. 
Applicants with less than a 4.0 grade-point average may be considered 
if they demonstrate strong motivation and aptitude, provided that 
spaces are available. 

Since they must have junior standing to be eligible to enter the 
College of Communications, students at the University of Illinois at 



Urbana-Champaign are advised to register as freshmen and sopho- 
mores in the prejournalism curriculum of the College of Liberal Arts 
and Sciences and to follow a broad general education program. 
Students at other institutions should follow similar programs. 

Although there is no formal preadvertising or prejournalism pro- 
gram, a strongly recommended program for each college curriculum 
for the first two years is available in the college office. These programs 
include basic courses in economics, English, history, philosophy, 
sociology, and anthropology, as well as courses satisfying the 
University's general education requirements. Students who do not 
have a reasonable degree of typing ability should acquire this skill 
before entering the college, because it is desirable in all curricula. A 
basic knowledge of computer skills is also useful. 

Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign should 
make arrangements at the college office to apply for an intra-college 
transfer early in the second semester of their sophomore year. Junior 
standing is necessary for students to take most courses offered by the 
College of Communications. 

Students completing their freshman and sophomore studies at 
institutions other than the University of Illinois are strongly advised 
to defer courses in advertising, journalism, and communications until 
enrolled in the College of Communications. Students must take all of 
their required communications courses in the College of Communica- 
tions. They may be permitted to transfer up to 9 hours of elective 
communications courses taken elsewhere, provided that they take an 
equivalent number of additional hours in advanced social studies, 
arts, and sciences beyond the 20 semester hours required for gradua- 
tion from the college. 

The college does not recommend that students with more than 90 
hours enter any of its undergraduate programs. The programs are 
designed for completion within four semesters. In certain cases, it is 
possible to complete the curriculum requirements in three semesters 
if prerequisites in sequential courses can be met. The college does not 
accept a student who has already received a bachelor's degree as a 
candidate for a second bachelor's degree. Instead, it recommends that 
such a student enter one of its graduate programs. 

GRADUATION 

The college offers programs of study leading to bachelor of science 
degrees in advertising, journalism, and in media studies. To meet the 
degree requirements, all students must satisfy general University 
requirements as to registration, residence, scholarship, and fees. They 
must complete the rhetoric requirements and approved sequences in 
the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences as listed under 
University general education requirements on page 38. All students 
must also fulfill the following general requirements of the College of 
Communications: 

— Complete a total of 124 semester hours of course credit. Basic 
physical education activity courses and basic courses in military, 
naval, or air force science may not be counted toward this total 
although such credits may be counted toward meeting the admis- 
sion requirement of 60 semester hours. No more than a total of 12 
hours earned in undergraduate open seminars (199 courses), in 
independent study courses outside the college, and in other experi- 
mental courses may be counted toward the degrees offered by the 
college. A student in the college may enroll in one such course for 
a maximum of 4 hours of credit in any semester with the consent of 
the head of the student's major department. The same policy is 
applied to credit for internships in fields other than communica- 
tions with the additional requirement that such courses must also 
be approved by the dean of the college. While the college encour- 
ages its students to hold internships in the communications field, 
particularly in the summer between the junior and senior years, it 
does not allow academic credit toward the degree for such experi- 
ence alone. Credit granted by other institutions for internships is 
not accepted. 

— Complete not less than 30 hours but not more than 36 hours in 
courses offered by the college in advertising, communications, and 
journalism. Those undergraduate courses cross-listed with adver- 
tising or journalism courses are considered college course offer- 
ings. Undergraduate communications courses cross-listed only 
with departments outside the college are not counted as college 
offerings, except COMM 322. 

— Complete not less than 20 hours in advanced (200- and 300-level) 
courses at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the 
social studies, arts, and sciences approved by the faculty. The 



Undergraduate Programs 



human resources and family studies minor may be substituted for 
the requirement of 20 hours in advanced social studies, arts, and 
sciences by advertising and journalism majors. 

— Complete the specific requirements of one of the curricula offered 
by the college, as listed below. 

— Complete 90 hours of credit outside the college, of which 65 hours 
must be taken in the liberal arts and sciences. 

— Earn a grade-point average of 3.0 (A = 5.0) in all courses presented 
for the degree. In addition, students must earn a 3.0 cumulative 
grade-point average for all courses taken while registered in the 
college. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

To be graduated from the College of Communications, students must 
satisfy the University's general education requirements, which in- 
clude completion of the two-course composition requirement and a 
minimum of 6 hours each in the humanities, social sciences, and 
natural sciences. The sequences and courses below have been ap- 
proved by the college. A student may not use sequences from any one 
department to satisfy the requirement in more than one of these areas. 

Any substitution of sequences or courses must be approved by the 
dean of the college. However, any sequence or combination of courses 
approved to fulfill these requirements by another college at the 
Urbana-Champaign campus may be accepted by the College of Com- 
munications with the exceptions stated below. 

The college will waive the requirements in any of the following 
three areas if the student's performance in the College-Level Exami- 
nation Program (CLEP) earned such a waiver in the student's previ- 
ous college at UIUC. However, only CLEP hours earned in the social 
sciences and humanities, up to a maximum of 12 hours, will be 
allowed toward the graduation requirement of 124 hours. CLEP credit 
hours earned in the natural sciences (including mathematics) and 
rhetoric will not be allowed. 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments are working to implement enhanced gen- 
eral education requirements. Some changes in requirements took 
effect in fall 1991 . Additional changes are expected to be implemented 
over the next several years. These changes may, for example, affect 
which courses satisfy the humanities, social sciences, and natural 
sciences requirements. Thus, new students should confirm their gen- 
eral education requirements by consulting college and departmental 
offices, handbooks, or advisers.

ies curricula use either life or physical sciences to satisfy this require- 
ment.

complete a minor. A student in advertising or journalism with a 
special interest in human resources and family studies may elect to 
follow a special minor of at least 20 hours as listed below. The minor 
may be substituted for the college requirement of 20 hours of ad- 
vanced social studies, arts, and sciences. 

For students not enrolled in the College of Communications, the 
college offers only one approved special minor, a minor in the teach- 
ing of journalism for students in teacher education. Other students are 
cautioned against attempting to follow a minor or cognate in commu- 
nications even if approved by their major departments. Enrollment in 
many courses offered by the college is restricted to majors in one of the 
college's curricula. In all college courses, enrollment priority is given 
to students enrolled in the College of Communications. 

MINOR IN HUMAN RESOURCES AND FAMILY STUDIES 

For a minor in human resources and family studies (home economics), 
the student must complete a minimum of 20 hours in courses offered 
by the School of Human Resources and Family Studies. The 20 hours 
completed in this area may be substituted for the 20 hours of advanced 
social studies, arts, and sciences required by the college for gradua- 
tion. However, all students in the news-editorial and broadcast jour- 
nalism sequences must satisfy the departmental requirements of at 
least 6 hours each in history, political science, philosophy, economics, 
sociology or anthropology, and English or American literature. These 
courses may be taken at the lower- or upper-division level. 

It is recommended that students select a concentration of courses 
from one of five areas of human resources and family studies (family 
and consumer economics, foods and nutrition, human development 
and family ecology, interior design, or textiles and apparel) and select 
electives in other areas to total 20 hours. 

TEACHER EDUCATION MINOR IN JOURNALISM 

This minor is specifically for students in teacher education programs. 
It requires a minimum of 18 hours in communications courses. In 
addition to three required courses with a total of 11 hours of credit, a 
minimum of 7 adilition.il hours must be chosen from a selected group 
of electives. Students are also required to take at least 7 hours of 
rhetoric, for a total of 25 hours.

The College of Education at the University of Illinois at Urbana- 
Champaign offers undergraduate degree programs in three of the six 
departments within the college. The departments that offer under- 
graduate degree programs, and the programs offered by each, are 
described below. 

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers degree 
programs in elementary education, early childhood education, and 
secondary education. Students who satisfactorily complete the degree 
program in elementary education are eligible for the University's 
recommendation for Illinois certification in grades kindergarten 
through nine. The early childhood education degree program pre- 
pares students for recommendation for early childhood Illinois certi- 
fication (birth through grade three). The secondary education pro- 
gram offers degrees in the following teaching specialties: English, 
mathematics, social studies, general science, physical sciences, and 
life sciences. Students who satisfactorily complete a degree program 
in secondary education are eligible for the University's recommenda- 
tion for Illinois certification in grades six through twelve. Only stu- 
dents who have earned at least 60 semester hours are considered for 
admission to secondary education curricula in the College of Educa- 
tion. 

The Department of Special Education offers an undergraduate 
degree program that prepares students to teach persons with moder- 
ate to severe disabilities. Students who satisfactorily complete the 
degree program in special education are eligible for the University's 
recommendation for Illinois certification in grades kindergarten 
through twelve with an endorsement in trainable mentally handi- 
capped. This program is able to accommodate only a small number of 
juniors and seniors. Applicants to this program must complete special 
admission procedures. 

The Department of Vocational and Technical Education offers 
degree programs in occupational /practical arts education and busi- 
ness education. At the time of publication, the business education 
program was proposed for elimination. Students interested in the 
occupational/practical arts education program for the training of 
teachers in nonschool settings are encouraged to contact the program 
adviser. Students who elect this option are not eligible for the 
University's recommendation for public school certification. 

In addition to these degree programs, a two-year curriculum in the 
College of Education, called education general, is available to students 
who have completed less than 60 semester hours of credit. It is 
designed to accommodate students admitted as freshmen who are 
uncertain about the specific degree programs they wish to pursue in 
the College of Education and who need to complete 60 hours to qualify 
for admission to curricula in the college for which junior standing is an 
admission requirement. 

In addition to offering undergraduate degree programs in educa- 
tion, the College of Education, under the auspices of the Council on 
Teacher Education, cooperates with four other undergraduate col- 
leges on the Urbana-Champaign campus to provide courses in profes- 
sional education to undergraduate students who are preparing for 
careers in teaching and special educational services. 

The College of Education also offers graduate degree programs. 
Detailed information concerning graduate programs in education 
may be obtained by referring to the College of Education Graduate 
Programs Handbook available in 120 Education Building.

College of Engineering 



Engineering Hall 
1308 West Green Street 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2280 

The College of Engineering prepares men and women for professional 
careers in engineering and related positions in industry, commerce, 
education, and government. The college provides training in the 
mathematical and physical sciences and their application to a broad 
spectrum of technological and social requirements of society. The 
engineering curricula, although widely varied and specialized, are 
built on a general foundation of scientific theory applicable to many 
different fields. Work in the classroom and laboratory is brought into 
sharper focus by practical problems that the student solves by meth- 
ods similar to those of practicing engineers. 

Although each student pursues a curriculum chosen to meet 
individual career goals, all students take certain common courses. 
Basic courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics, rhetoric, and com- 



Undergraduate Programs 



puter science are required in the first two years. Although the cur- 
ricula are progressively specialized in the third and fourth years, each 
student is required to take some courses outside his or her chosen 
field. 

Nontechnical courses are included in each curriculum; they may 
be required or elective. Many nontechnical courses satisfy the broad 
objectives of the humanities and social sciences requirements of the 
engineering curricula, thus making the student keenly aware of the 
urgent problems of society and developing a deeper appreciation of 
human cultural achievements. The humanities and social sciences 
courses are usually drawn from the liberal arts and sciences, econom- 
ics, and approved courses in fine and applied arts. A student who 
desires a broader cultural background should consider a combined 
engineering-liberal arts and sciences program; see page 85. 

The Grainger Engineering Library Information Center is a major 
resource center for students in all curricula. State-of-the-art resources 
include a digital imaging lab, computer and multimedia lab, instruc- 
tional services lab, information retrieval research lab, and high-tech 
classrooms. It also contains the reference books, periodicals, catalogs, 
and technical publications that students need constantly and provides 
materials for general reading and private research. 

Departments and Curricula 

The College of Engineering includes the Departments of Aeronautical 
and Astronautical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, 
Electrical and Computer Engineering, General Engineering, Materials 
Science and Engineering, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, 
Nuclear Engineering, Physics, and Theoretical and Applied Mechan- 
ics. The undergraduate curricula described later in this section are 
administered by these units. The work in chemical engineering is 
administered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The curricu- 
lum in agricultural engineering is administered jointly by the College 
of Agriculture and the College of Engineering. 

The listing by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Tech- 
nology of the programs of the College of Engineering, required by the

Requirements 



TheChemistry Placement Test is required of all entering freshmen. 
This examination will be used to place a student in a background 
course for engineers, CHEM 1 00, or in the normal beginning course for 
engineers, CHEM 101. A student with a superior background in 
chemistry may take the chemistry proficiency test, which, if passed, 
will place the student in CHEM 102 and grant the student 3 hours of 
proficiency credit for CHEM 101; the additional 1 hour must be made 
up as a free elective. A student with advanced placement credit in 
mathematics, chemistry, or physics (see pages 29 and 30) will receive 
credit toward graduation and will be placed in advanced course work 
consistent with academic preparation.

TRANSFER STUDENT ADMISSION 

The College of Engineering admits qualified transfer students from 
both community and four-year colleges and has worked closely with 
these schools in Illinois to implement coordinated engineering pro- 
grams. 

Students may complete the first two years of study in other 
accredited institutions and transfer to the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign with little or no loss of credit, provided that they 
follow the proper program. A suggested list of courses that should be 
completed in the first two years before transferring is given below. A 
range of hours is given in each of these course work areas, because the 
major concern is that students have an adequate coverage of basic 
subject matter rather than specific numbers of hours in given areas. 
Ranges are given applicable to both quarter-hour and semester-hour 
systems.

ENTERING FRESHMEN ADMISSION 

Students seeking admission to the College of Engineering who are 
recent high school graduates or who have earned fewer than 12 
semester hours of credit at other collegiate institutions are classified as 
new freshmen and must meet the entrance requirements to the Col- 
lege of Engineering that are specified for new freshmen. Students are 
admitted to the college on a best-qualified basis as determined by ACT 
composite scores and high school percentile ranks supplied on high 
u I M » J transcripts. 

Although now freshmen take a common, or similar, program 
(shown below), they are asked to choose a curriculum in which they 
wish to study. A freshman usually can change the curriculum of study 
during the freshman year. Some restrictions apply when differential 
roo dures are used. Because the program of study is 
i for all freshman students, such changes can be 
made without loss of credit toward graduation

OTHER COURSES 



Social sciences and humanities 



Students should complete as many of the suggested courses as 
possible and select additional courses from those in the Other Courses 
list above to complete full-time study programs. Normally, a student 
will complete all of the suggested courses and 8 to 10 additional 
semester hours of course work. This additional course work may 
include social sciences and humanities electives but could include 
work in computer science or advanced mathematics. 

Before selecting social sciences and humanities electives, students 
should familiarize themselves with the elective requirements of the 
college. A list is available from the Office of the Associate Dean for 
Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall. Any student who wants to 
1 1, insici tot he college must have a cumulative grade-point average of 
at least 3.6 (A = 5.0) to apply, but competiti ve standards for admission 
are usually higher than the 3.6 level. 

Students may transfer to the college for the fall, spring, or summer 
session provided they have met competitive grade-point average 
i iih ills and have completed 60 or more semester hours of work. 
Transfer students are required to have also completed the basic 



College of Engineering 



mathematics (through calculus), physics, chemistry, and English (rheto- 
ric and composition) sequences in the 60 or more semester hours 
required for transfer Transfer students starting their studies in the fall 
sem es ter are allowed to advance enroll during the preceding summer, 
Students are informed ol this opportunity after they are admitted. 
Questions are invited concerning this procedure. 

A few sophomore-level technical courses may not be ottered by 
most community colleges. However, junior-level transfer students 
can usually arrange their programs on the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus so that all technical requirements can be completed in a four- 
semester period on this campus it they wish to do so. If the number of 
hours remaining to complete a degree requires more than four semes- 
ters, the student mav enroll for an additional summer session or 
semester. 

Students planning to transfer to the College of Engineering are 
encouraged to write to the Office of the Associate Dean for Academic 
Programs, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, 207 Engineer- 
ing Hall, 1308 West Green Street, Urbana, IL 61801, or to the head of 
the department to which they wish to transfer. A student should 
complete all sequences in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and En- 
glish at one institution to maintain proper continuity. In cases where 
this is not possible, a student may enroll in a summer session to make 
up deficiencies. Individual program plans between most transfer 
institutions and the College of Engineering are available upon re- 
quest. 

Transfer students are not required to take freshman guidance 
examinations or any other examinations to qualify for admission to 
the College of Engineering, but all other admission regulations apply 
to them. Transfer students should consult Admission of Transfer 
Applicants on page 15 for general information concerning transfer to 
the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and students from 
community colleges should note especially the rules regarding com- 
munity colleges on page 15. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

The Campus Senate, the faculty General Education Board, and the 
colleges and departments are working to implement enhanced gen- 
eral education requirements. Thus, new students should confirm their 
general education requirements by consulting college and depart- 
mental offices, handbooks, or advisers. 

Special Programs 

COMBINED ENGINEERING-LIBERAL ARTS AND SCIENCES 
PROGRAM 

A five-year program of study permits a student to earn a Bachelor of 
Science degTee in a field of engineering from the College of Engineer- 
ing and a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree from the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the Urbana-Champaign cam- 
pus. 

This program affords the student the opportunity to prepare for a 
career of an interdisciplinary nature. By selecting an appropriate 
liberal arts and sciences major in combination with the desired engi- 
neering curriculum, it is possible for a student to qualify for new 
careers in industry, business, or government. A student who desires 
a broader background than can be provided in the four-year engineer- 
ing curricula can develop a program that includes a well-rounded 
cultural education in addition to an engineering specialty. Each stu- 
dent must file an approved program with the College of Engineering 
and with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Advisers in both colleges assist in planning a program of study to 
meet the needs and requirements for both degrees. Most combinations 
of engineering and liberal arts curricula may be completed in ten 
semesters if the student does not have deficiencies in the entrance 
requirements of either college. 

Most engineering curricula can be combined with one of a variety 
of liberal arts and sciences majors including languages, social sciences, 
humanities, speech communication, and philosophy. This combined 
program operates under the following conditions: 

— Students entering the program must meet admission require- 
ments for both colleges. 

— A student who starts in the program and decides to transfer from 
it is subject to the existing graduation requirements of the college 
of his or her choice. 

— The degrees of bachelor of science in engineering and bachelor of 
arts or bachelor of science in liberal arts and sciences are awarded 



simultaneously. No student in the combined program is permitted 
to receive a degree from either college before the completion of the 
entire program. 

— Participants must satisfy the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
foreign language graduation requirement. 

— Students electing advanced Reserve Officers' Training Corps and 
Naval ROTC programs are required to meet these commitments in 
addition to the combined program as outlined. 

— Students having 75 or more hours of transfer credit are not advised 
to enter this program, because they cannot ordinarily complete it 
in five years. 

— Students transferring from other colleges and universities must 
plan to complete at least one year in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences at Urbana-Champaign and one year in the College of 
Engineering at Urbana-Champaign to satisfy residency require- 
ments if both degrees are to be granted here. Other students should 
plan to spend a minimum of two years in each college. 

— A student is expected to maintain at least a 3.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point 
average to be accepted or to continue in the program. A higher 
grade-point average may be imposed. 

During the first year, students are enrolled in the common fresh- 
man program for engineers, which is taken in the College of Engineer- 
ing (see page 84). Students are normally enrolled in the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences for the second and third years and in the 
College of Engineering for the fourth and fifth years. A typical 
combined program follows:

Undergraduate Programs 



AFFILIATIONS WITH OTHER LIBERAL ARTS COLLEGES 

Through a program of affiliation between the College of Engineering 
and a number of liberal arts colleges, a student may enroll in a five- 
year program, earn a bachelor's degree from one of these colleges, and 
at the same time earn a bachelor's degree in engineering from the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In general, students 
spend the first three years at the liberal arts college and the final two 
years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At the time 
of transfer, students must meet competitive transfer admission re- 
quirements. Students must meet certain residency requirements to 
participate in this program. Students transferring from these pro- 
grams must be resicients of Illinois to qualify for admission to UIUC. 

Increasing numbers of engineering graduates enter leadership 
roles in industry and government and require a greater understand- 
ing of the impact of technology on society. The five-year program 
encourages a student to develop a broad understanding of the social 
sciences and humanities while striving for excellence in technical 
studies. These affiliations have the added benefit of allowing students 
to take preengineering studies at liberal arts schools chosen on the 
basis of geographical location, prestige, religious principles, family 
circumstances, or other personal reasons. Students interested in this 
dual degree program should meet with advisers from both schools to 
develop an individual plan of study.

COOPERATIVE ENGINEERING EDUCATION PROGRAM 

A five-year program in cooperative engineering education is available 
to students in all curricula in the college. A student in the program 
alternates periods of attendance at UIUC with periods of employment 
in industry or government. The employment, which is an essential 
element in the educational process, is with the same company each 
work period and is related to the student's field of study. The assign- 
ment ini reases in difficulty and responsibility with each succeeding 
period "ii > ampus 

Students who wish to join the program must be enrolled in the 

ng at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Cham- 

If accepted by a participating employer, the first olf-campus 

edui ational assignment will bes ( heduled during the summer after th 

freshman year, or the student will attend the summer session and 

in toff-i ampus assignment during the fall semester after the 

freshman year. Typh .il chedules and participating employees are 

shown in a brochure available from the ( ooperative Engineering 

Office, 1 nr ei ity of Illinois at 1 rbana-< hampaign, !07 Engineering

4165; FAX (217) 244-4974; EMAIL axehunt@uxl.cso.uiuc.edu. 

Sophomores, advanced undergraduates, and community college 
transfer students are eligible for the program. Advanced students will 
still require five years to complete the program, but they will have 
fewer off-campus assignments. 

Students enrolled in the cooperative education program are regis- 
tered in the University and are considered to be full-time students for 
the entire five years required by the program. Entries indicating 
participation in the program are entered on the student's official 
transcript each semester and summer that he or she is enrolled. Upon 
successful completion of the program, the student is awarded a 
certificate signed by the dean of the college and the off-campus 
coordinator and receives the regular diploma awarded for completing 
the degree requirements. 

Options and Minors 



COLLEGE OPTION IN BIOENGINEERING 

Bioengineering is a broad, interdisciplinary field that brings together 
engineering, biology, and medicine to create new techniques, devices, 
and understanding of living systems to improve the quality of human 
life. Its practice ranges from the fundamental study of the behavior of 
biological materials to the design and development of medical instru- 
ments. 

Any of the engineering curricula will provide a good foundation 
for work in bioengineering. In addition, however, the engineering 
undergraduate needs additional courses in the biological sciences and 
organic chemistry to obtain a strong background for bioengineering. 
With such a background, the student should be able to progress 
rapidly on the graduate level in any branch of bioengineering. In 
industry, the graduate will be competent to handle engineering tasks 
related to biology. 

The courses shown here have been selected specifically for the 
undergraduate engineering student. There are three alternatives that 
can be selected to meet the individual student's plans, designated A, 
B, and C. The listing of bioengineering and related courses is not 
exhaustive but represents examples of courses. An additional course 
and lab in organic chemistry or biochemistry would be required for 
entrance to most medical schools. A minimum of 16 hours is required 
for the option. To obtain recognition for the bioengineering option, 
students must register in the Office of the Associate Dean for Aca- 
demic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall.

COLLEGE OPTION IN MANUFACTURING ENGINEERING 

Recent national attention on quality and productivity improvements 
in the manufacturing sector has led to a resurgence of emphasis and 
activity in manufacturing engineering. The demand is increasing for 
engineers who will be qualified to design and operate the factories of 
the future. This field requires the integration of information technol- 
ogy, materials, and machines. It is believed that no single engineering 
discipline can supply the type of engineer needed for system integra- 
tion. The option in manufacturing engineering provides an opportu- 
nity to engineering students to learn a common language of manufac- 
turing systems engineering. 

This program is intended for engineering students in all major 
disciplines who are interested in manufacturing engineering. The 
option in manufacturing engineering requires a total of 18 semester 
hours of course work. Only a small number of these courses may be 
above and beyond the requirements of the student's regular curricu- 
lum, particularly if the student can make use of technical elective or 
similarly designated hours. 

HOURS REQUIREMENTS

3 MFG E 340 — Processing and Finishing of Materials 

3 MFG E 350 — Information Management for Manufacturing 

Systems 
9 Level 3' courses. In order that the option have some 

coherence, the three courses must be selected from specified 
groups of courses related to the Level 2 courses. 

Courses within a given discipline that are required for completion 
of the bachelor's degree in that discipline may not be used by students 
in that discipline to satisfy the Level 3 course requirements of the 
option. 

It is recommended that one of the Level 3 courses be an indepen- 
dent study project course dealing with an open-ended manufacturing 
design problem defined by an outside organization. Students enrolled 
in the project course will apply engineering principles and techniques 
learned from manufacturing-related courses and topics covered in 
their major disciplines in the formulation, analysis, and solution of 
manufacturing design problems. 



'Level 3 Courses: Each Level 2 course is supported by approximately twenty to thirty 
Level 3 courses that now exist within the course structures of the various engineering 
departments. These courses provide students with the opportunity to specialize in one 
or more aspects of manufacturing engineering. 

The course of study for a manufacturing option thus provides a 
student with a flexible program that can be tailored to suit the area of 
interest and the major engineering discipline in which the student is 
enrolled. To foster an interdisciplinary learning environment, a set of 
laboratories is being developed. The main laboratory is the Intelligent 



Manufacturing Systems Laboratory, which consists of a flexible flu 
facturing cell. * ■ 

The director of the program is Professor Shiv G. Kapoor, Depart- 
ment of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (phone 333-3432). 
Additional information can be obtained from him or at the Office of 
the Associate Dean for Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall.

FOOD AND PROCESS ENGINEERING MINOR 

The food processing industry is the largest manufacturing industry in 
the United States and in the world. Nearly all food products require 
some preservation, processing, storage, and shipping. Preservation 
and processing techniques for foods, pharmaceuticals, and related 
products are becoming increasingly scrutinized to insure safety of the 
products and to increase productivity of the processes. 

Technical developments in the food, pharmaceutical, and related 
processing industries have created a need for professionals with 
training in food and process engineering. The demand for engineers 
with specialized training is increasing as processing techniques be- 
come more sophisticated and as companies improve their facilities. 

Engineering students interested in developing a background in 
food or process engineering may pursue a structured program of 
study that will lead to a bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline 
and a minor in food and process engineering at graduation. This 
program is intended for engineering students in all major disciplines. 
In most cases, courses from the minor can be applied as electives in the 
student's major. 

To receive a minor in food and process engineering, a student must 
complete the following requirements:

in the minor will have opportunity for employment. Assignments will be 
determined by interviews and contacts with company representatives, and 
students will compete with others in the program for specific positions. Each 
student is required to write a paper that summarizes the internship. (Under 
certain conditions this requirement may be replaced by an additional three 
semester credit hours of course work.)

POLYMER SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING MINOR 

Polymer science and engineering is a broad interdisciplinary field that 
brings together various aspects of chemistry, physics, and engineer- 
ing for the understanding, development, and application of the mate- 
rials science of polymers. Many of the existing engineering curricula 
provide a good foundation for work in polymer science and engineer- 
Lng, 1 lowever, the undergraduate student needs additional courses 
spec ifically dealing with the science and engineering of large mol- 
ecules. With such a background, the student should be able to progress 
rapidly in industry or at the graduate level. In addition to those 
ill. 1 1 ts specifically desiring a career in polymers, this minor also can 
be valuable to students interested in the development, design, and 
application of materials in general. 

[he courses listed below have been selected specifically to give an 
undergraduate student a strong background in polymer science and 
eering. A minimum of eight i ourses is required, several of which 
the student would normally take to satisfy the requirements of the 
ba ii degree fo obi. mi recognition for the polymer science and 
ering minor, students must register in the < nine of the Associ- 
ate Dean for Academic Programs, 207 Engineering Hall. The student 
also consul! with Professoi Phillip H. GeU, Department oi

THESIS 

With the approval of the department concerned, a senior of high 
standing in any curriculum may substitute, for one or more technical 
courses, an investigation of a special subject and write a thesis. 

CURRICULUM MODIFICATION 

A student interested in modifying his or her curriculum may do so by 
checking with his or her department and adviser to determine the 
petition procedure for making a curriculum modification. 

SPECIAL CURRICULA 

Students of high scholastic achievement, with exceptional aptitudes 
and interests in special fields of engineering and their application, 
may be permitted to vary the course content of the standard curricula 
to emphasize some phases not included or not encompassed by the 
usual course substitution and selection of electives. These unwritten 
curricula, however, must include all of the fundamental courses of the 
standard curricula, the variations being made mainly in the so-called 
applicatory portions of the standard curricula of the college. The 
program of study of each student permitted to take such a special 
curriculum must be approved by a committee of the college, in 
consultation with the head of the department in which the student is 
registered and with a faculty member of the college. This faculty 
member automatically becomes the student's adviser in charge of 
registration and other matters pertaining to the approved program. 

ADVANCED ROTC TRAINING COMBINED WITH 
ENGINEERING 

A student in the College of Engineering may elect to participate in the 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps Program and earn a commission in 
the U.S. Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, or Naval Reserve. A 
commission is awarded simultaneously with the awarding of the 
bachelor of science degree in an engineering field. Participation in 
these programs is limited to students who apply to and are selected by 
the army, air force, and navy units at the University. Monthly stipends 
are paid to those selected for advanced military training 

These programs require from one to three summer camps or 
cruises and the earning of specified numbers of credits in advanced 
military courses. Credits earned appear in all academic averages 
computed by the College of Engineering. Basic military courses (100- 



College of Engineering 



level) do nol count toward graduation. A maximum oi 6 hours of 200- 
level militar) science courses may be used asfreeelectives A student 

should plan on taking nine semesters to obtain both a bacheloi s 
degree in engineering and a commission in the ROTC program. For 
further information, write directh to the protestor of military science, 
the professor oi aerospace studies, or the professor of naval science. 
(See pages 40 through 43.) 

International Opportunities 

INTERNATIONAL MINOR IN ENGINEERING 

Many College of Engineering graduates will be involved in interna- 
tional activities during their professional careers. In anticipation of 
such involvement, the college offers an opportunity for students to 
complete an international minor in any of the regular degree pro- 
grams offered. More than 95 percent of the engineering students have 
had language training in high school, and this program allows them 
to continue their studies in related areas. All requirements must be 
satisfied before graduation. To complete the international minor, the 
student must: 

— complete all degree requirements in the student's selected engi- 
neering discipline; 

— complete foreign language studies in a language of a chosen geo- 
graphical area (language level required will vary with the geo- 
graphical area selected); 

— complete a minimum of 21 hours of cultural or language studies 
related to the geographical area of concentration; 9 hours must be 
other than language credit and include at least one 300-level 
course; 

— complete a period of involvement (a work period, study period, 
internship, or other form of involvement) of at least six to eight 
weeks in the geographical area of concentration. 

The student will be expected to select a specific geographical area 
for concentration that will be recognized in the designation of the 
minor, such as international minor — Latin American studies. Course 
work selected for the minor must be approved by the International 
Programs in Engineering office. A list of suggested courses is available 
from that office. 

Through its association with the International Association for the 
Exchange of Students for Technical Experience, the college can assist 
students in gaining some work opportunities in other countries. The 
college can assist students in finding educational exchange programs 
at institutions in other countries that will help the student meet the 
"period of involvement" requirement. Students with foreign lan- 
guage backgrounds before entering the college will normally be able 
to complete the program in four academic years. Those not having this 
background, or taking a year of study in a foreign institution, may take 
four and one-half to five years. 

ELMENDORF WORLD CITIZENSHIP TRAVEL AWARDS 

An alumnus of the College of Engineering, Armin Elmendorf, estab- 
lished this fund to encourage engineering students to seek an under- 
standing of the responsibilities of world citizenship. Engineering 
students traveling abroad as part of the educational programs spon- 
sored by the College of Engineering are eligible for some financial aid. 
These funds have certain requirements for qualification. Further 
information about these travel awards may be obtained from the 
International Programs in Engineering office. 

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES 

The International Association for the Exchange of Students for Tech- 
nical Experience (IAESTE) is a private, nonprofit organization that 
enables students of engineering, architecture, and the sciences to 
obtain on-the-job training in foreign countries. Any student, under- 
graduate or graduate, who is enrolled in good standing at the Univer- 
sity and who has completed at least the sophomore year of study may 
apply. Generally, the maintenance allowance is adequate to cover 
living expenses while in training but does not cover transportation 
costs. Further information about these opportunities may be obtained 
from the College of Engineering. 

EAGLE JAPAN PROGRAM 

The Engineering Alliance for Global Education (EAGLE) is an alliance 
of engineering colleges organized to provide global educational op- 



portunities for their students. Supported by a government grant, 
EAGLE prepares engineering students in Japanese language and 
cultural studies for placement into Japanese industrial work experi- 
ences. Applicants attend an eight-week summer language program in 
Japan; afterwards, EAGLE seeks to place them in Japanese industry 
for internships of one to two years. 

The program requires the completion of one or two years of 
Japanese studies or equivalent preparation. Students must have a 
bachelor's degree before placement in the work experience. 

EXCHANGE SCHOLARSHIPS AT MUNICH AND DARMSTADT, 
GERMANY 

The College of Engineering has exchange scholarships with the Tech- 
nical University in Munich, Germany, and theTechnische Hochschule 
Darmstadt in Darmstadt, Germany. Under the terms of the agree- 
ment, two University of Illinois students are given tuition scholar- 
ships at the Technical University in Munich and five are given schol- 
arships at the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt. Stipends to cover 
living expenses for the year are included in the Munich program. 
Students selected by the Technical University in Munich and by the 
Technische Hochschule Darmstadt receive tuition scholarships at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Equivalent cash stipends 
are awarded to the Munich students. Students are responsible for their 
own transportation expenses. 

To be eligible for study at the Technical University in Munich, a 
student should be enrolled in one of the following curricula: civil 
engineering, electrical engineering, industrial engineering, mechani- 
cal engineering, metallurgical engineering, nuclear engineering, engi- 
neering physics. To be eligible for study at the Technische Hochschule 
Darmstadt, a student should be enrolled in one of the following 
curricula: civil engineering, chemical engineering, mechanical engi- 
neering, physics. It is expected that the full year's study abroad will be 
used toward graduation in the student's curriculum at Urbana- 
Champaign. 

To participate in one of the programs, a student must have com- 
pleted GER 104 or the equivalent (additional courses in German are 
recommended) and finished his or her sophomore studies in engi- 
neering at the Urbana-Champaign campus. In addition, the student 
must be an outstanding scholar who will be an excellent representa- 
tive of the University of Illinois and must be a U.S. citizen. 

The programs are under the general administration of the Engi- 
neering College Honors Council, although a recipient need not be an 
honors student if he or she has an outstanding undergraduate record. 

FRENCH EDUCATIONAL EXCHANGE PROGRAM 

College of Engineering students may participate in the French ex- 
change programs at the following institutions: Institut National 
Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL), Nancy, and Universite de 
Technologie de Compiegne, Compiegne. Each student should be a 
junior and should have credit for FR 104 or the equivalent, although 
additional courses in French are recommended. One- or two-semester 
programs are available, with tuition and certain academic-related 
expenses provided. 

The CESELEC program offers electrical and computer engineering 
students a chance to study at one of Frances's Grandes Ecoles. 
CESECLEC is an association of universities, industries, and govern- 
ment administrators designed to organize foreign relations in educa- 
tion and training. Students with junior- or senior-level standing and 
advanced French-language skills can select an institution that special- 
izes in an area of interest in electrical engineering. The renowned 
Grandes Ecoles offer top-level instruction in electrical engineering 
and are located in cities throughout France. CESELEC exchanges 
provide students with an opportunity to live among French students, 
experience European culture, and improve language skills for a 
semester or academic year. 

SUMMER EXCHANGE PROGRAMS IN ARGENTINA, BRAZIL, 
CHILE, CHINA, FRANCE, JAPAN, AND RUSSIA 

To introduce College of Engineering students to the cultures and 
languages of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, France, Japan, and 
Russia, programs were developed with different institutions in these 
countries. These opportunities are designed mainly to enable students 
to learn about the people of these countries during a six-week period, 
to study the language, and to work in a limited way with technology. 
Travel to interesting places is included in a few of these programs. 
Credit-hour courses in the appropriate language are required in the 



Undergraduate Programs 



spring semester before departure. Lodging, meals, and medical care 
are provided. 

OTHER STUDY ABROAD EXCHANGE PROGRAMS 

Many exchange programs are available for engineering students on 
this campus with educational institutions throughout the world. The 
College of Engineering works closely with the Study Abroad Office in 
developing programs of study in which course credits can be trans- 
ferred to this campus. The College of Engineering is planning pro- 
grams with institutions in Spain and other countries. Further informa- 
tion about these programs may be obtained from the International 
Programs in Engineering office, College of Engineering. 

Honors Programs 



HONORS AT GRADUATION 

Honors awarded at graduation to superior students are designated on 
the diploma as honors, high honors, or highest honors. A student 
receives honors with a cumulative University of Illinois grade-point 
average of at least 4.5, and high honors with at least a 4.8 grade-point 
average at graduation (A = 5.0). Highest honors may be awarded to 
any student eligible for high honors upon recommendation of his or 
her department. The criteria used by departments in selecting indi- 
viduals for highest honors recognition include outstanding perfor- 
mance in course work and in supplementary activities of an academic 
or professional nature. Ordinarily, such a citation requires completion 
of an undergraduate thesis or a special project of superior quality. 

TAU BETA PI 

Tau Beta Pi is a national engineering honor society that recognizes 
students, alumni, and engineers for outstanding academic achieve- 
ments and exemplary character. The Alpha chapter at the University 
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was founded in 1897 and is the fifth 
oldest chapter of Tau Beta Pi. In addition to gaining scholastic recog- 
nition, members participate in a range of activities that serve the 
chapter, the College of Engineering, and the community. The scholas- 
tic requirement for membership in Tau Beta Pi is that juniors must be 
in the upper one-eighth of their graduating class and seniors must be 
in the upper one-fifth of their graduating class. 

EDMUND J. JAMES SCHOLARS 

The honors program in engineering is part of the University's James 
Scholar program, which was established to recognize and develop the 
talents of academically outstanding students. Engineering students in 
this program are known as "James Scholars in Engineering." Each is 
assigned to an honors ad viser and receives special consideration in the 
selection of a course program to meet specific needs. Students may 
apply for the program during summer advance enrollment or at the 
beginning of any semester. 

A new freshman is eligible to enter the program if he or she meets 
two of the following three requirements: (1) rank in the top 10 percent 
of his or her high school graduating class; (2) ACT subscore in 
mathematics of 34 or better; (3) ACT composite score of 31 or better. To 
be eligible for admission and continuation in the James Scholar 
program in engineering, students other than new freshmen must have 
cumulative grade-point averages of 4.5 or better for juniors and 
seniors and 4.3 or better for sophomores. A transfer student with a 
superior transfer record may be accepted into the program on request 
after the completion of one normal semester in engineering with a 
grade-point average commensurate with the requirement for the 
student's class. 

Good standing in the James Scholar program at graduation re- 
quires participation in special honors work for a majority of the 
< me iters in which a student is in residence. 

DEAN'S LIST 

See the reference to the Dean's List on page 40. 



HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCES ELECTIVES 

A total of 18 hours of humanities and social sciences is required (in 

tori( i, including one sequence in the humanities and 

cieno i ["hi two sequences cannot be in the same 

department. A sequence is defined as any combination oi at least 6 

hours of uses taught by a single nonengineering depart- 



ment or any of the interdisciplinary sequences. Additional courses to 
complete the 18 hours must also be drawn from the list of approved 
courses. This list is available from advisers or from the Office of the 
Associate Dean for Academic Programs. All seminars (including 199), 
honors courses, thesis courses, and individual study are excluded 
except as specifically approved. 

Students may obtain credit from different academic sources, i.e., 
residential instruction, College-Level Examination Program tests, 
advanced placement tests, and transfer credits. Credit in any specific 
subject may be used toward degree requirements only once. Because 
of the variety of sources available for social sciences and humanities 
electives, students may receive duplicate credit in specific courses, 
such as American history. Students should be aware that such dupli- 
cation cannot be used toward degree requirements. 

TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

Each engineering curriculum offers some elective opportunities, which 
may be specified as technical or nontechnical. All technical elective 
courses must be selected in accordance with departmental 
requirements. 

Technical electives generally include 200- and 300-level courses in 
engineering, mathematics, and the natural sciences. 

FREE ELECTIVES 

These electives are selected at the prerogative of the student except as 
noted below. 

Credit will not be allowed for courses of a remedial nature, such as 
mathematics below analytic geometry or basic military training. No 
more than 3 semester hours of physical education course work (basic 
level, i.e., activity courses) may be used as free electives nor may they 
be applied toward degree requirements. No more than 4 hours of 
religious foundation courses or 6 hours of advanced military science 
courses may be used as free electives. 

Total transfer credit in required basic courses in mathematics 
(through integral calculus), physics, rhetoric, freshman chemistry, 
computer science, and engineering graphics may be used for free 
electives only if the credit covers topics beyond those in equivalent 
courses at UIUC. Further restrictions on the acceptance of transfer 
credit for free electives may be imposed by the departments with the 
approval of the associate dean for academic programs. 

CREDIT-NO CREDIT OPTION 

The credit-no credit grade option is available for students who want 
to explore areas of academic interest that they might otherwise avoid 
for fear of poor grades. All students considering this option are 
cautioned that many graduate and professional schools consider 
applicants whose transcripts bear a significant number of nongrade 
symbols less favorably than those whose transcripts contain none or 
very few. Conditions under which students may take courses on a 
credit-no credit basis are outlined in the booklet Code on Campus Affairs 
and Handbook of Policies and Regulations Applying to All Students, which 
is distributed to all students. Required courses in the College of 
Engineering may not be taken on this basis.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Agricultural 
Engineering 

Agricultural engineering is the integration of biological and physical 
sciences as a foundation for engineering applications in agriculture, 
food systems, natural resources, the environment, and related biologi- 
cal systems. Agricultural engineers are involved in the design of 
systems that include food and bioprocess engineering, off-road equip- 
ment, bioenvironmental engineering of plant and animal facilities, 
water quality, and systems for the use and protection of soil and water 
resources. Important design constraints are economics, conservation 
of materials and energy, safety, and environmental quality. Graduates 
are employed by industry, consulting firms, and government for 
research, education, and manufacturing. All graduates obtain a four- 
year ABET-accredited bachelor of science degree from the College of 
Engineering and may receive an optional five-year bachelor of science 
degree from the College of Agriculture. By choice of electives, a 
student may direct his or her program toward specialization in power 
and machinery, soil and water, structures and environment, or electric 
power and processing or to a separate food and bioprocess engineer- 
ing specialization. Individual programs are checked by departmental 
advisers to ensure that Accreditation Board for Engineering and 
Technology requirements are met for any chosen specialization. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation except for the 
specialization in food and bioprocess engineering, which requires 1 32 
hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Ceramic Engineering 

The program in ceramic engineering is administered by and is part of 
the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Ceramic engi- 
neering is one of the principal fields dealing with materials — their 
properties, behavior, and applications. Some of the ceramic products 
originate with naturally occurring minerals; others require the syn- 
thesis of specific compounds to obtain the desired properties. Major 
industries such as electronics, steel, glass, aerospace, and construction 
depend heavily upon ceramic materials and their unique properties, 
especially at high temperatures. The ceramic engineering curriculum 
provides a strong background in engineering and applied science 
with emphasis on understanding material properties and processes. 
By choice of electives, a student may direct his or her program toward 
greater emphasis on electronics, bioengineering, glass, or high-tem- 
perature materials. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

HOURS TECHNICAL ELECTIVES 

35 Civil engineering core courses and technical electives. 

rechnical electives must be selected from departmental!) 
approved lists and be in ai cordance with guidelines established 
by the department in ea< h of the following two categories: 

12 min Primary Area of Emphasis: Selected from among the courses 

offered in one of the technical specialty areas in which 
instruction is offered in this department (see the following 
listing). 

6 min Secondary Area of Emphasis: Selected from some technical 

area other than the student's primary area of emphasis. The 
secondary emphasis area is commonly another technical 
specialty in civil engineering; students may broaden their basic 
interests and competencies by selecting secondary areas that 
are outside of civil engineering but that relate to and support 
their areas of primary interests. 

It is further required that the courses selected as technical electives, together 
with those chosen as civil engineering core courses, satisfy the following 
minimum engineering design content criteria: 

16 Cumulative engineering design content in each student's 

program, where the number of hours of design content in each 
civil engineering course are specified by the department in 
listings of course contents. 

Each student must complete at least one course that requires 
completion by the student of an integrated design project. The 
courses that meet this criterion are determined by the 
department faculty and are identified in the Civil Engineering 
Undergraduate Student Handbook. 

Explicit guidelines for the selection of technical electives in primary and secondary 
categories, together with suggested courses in each of the available technical 
specialty areas in civil engineering, are published by the department in theCit'i 1

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Mechanics 

This curriculum, offered by the Department of Theoretical and Ap- 
plied Mechanics, is intended primarily for students pursuing careers 
in research and development in mechanical, civil, aerospace, and 
related engineering fields. The program also provides excellent prepa- 
ration for graduate study in many different engineering disciplines. 

Because of the diversity of modem research and development 
problems — especially in such newly emerging areas as energy devel- 
opment, materials engineering, space technology, and computer- 
based design — the curriculum is organized around a core that empha- 
sizes a broad education covering the basic areas of science and 
engineering mechanics that are fundamental to all branches of engi- 
neering. In addition, six secondary field options — engineering sci- 
ence, experimental mechanics, computer applications, materials (met- 
als), materials (polymers and composites), and biomechanics — allow 
the student to concentrate on areas of special interest. Any student 
with special educational goals may modify the curriculum by petition 
with the approval of the department and the College of Engineering. 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation. A curriculum 
revision was pending at the time of publication. See a departmental 
adviser for further information.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Engineering Physics 

This curriculum provides broad, thorough training in fundamental 
physics and mathematics to prepare students for graduate study in 
physics and related fields and for research and development positions 
in industrial and governmental laboratories. For the first two years, 
the curriculum follows the common engineering program. In the last 
two years, the emphasis is on advanced courses in physics and 
mathematics, with an allowance for electives. 

When registering for advanced undergraduate courses in physics, 
a student continuing in or transferring to this curriculum must have 
(1) a grade-point average of 3.5 (A = 5.0) in all University subjects 
exclusive of military science, physical education, and band; (2) a 
grade-point average of at least 3.5 in all 100- and 200-level courses in 
mathematics and physics; and (3) a separate grade-point average of at 
least 3.5 for all 300-level mathematics and physics courses. This grade- 
point average must include at least two physics courses. A transfer 
student must have a corresponding record in the institution from 
which he or she has transferred and must maintain such status at the 
UIUC. 

Students with proficiency or Advanced Placement (AP) credit for 
MATH 120 are strongly encouraged to enroll in MATH 130 and 
PHYCS 106 for the first semester. Entering freshmen should enroll for 
the fall term in PHYCS 100 (under development as PHYCS 199B), 
where they will meet with faculty members and other physics majors. 

The illustrative syllabus that follows shows the required courses in 
a four-year program. A minimum of 128 hours is required for gradu- 
ation. However, many students take these courses in a different order 
and take additional courses at their discretion. The program includes 



Undergraduate Programs 



37 hours of electives, 18 of which must be chosen from the College of 
Engineering list of approved electives in the social sciences and 
humanities. The remaining 19 hours include 6 hours of free electives 
and 13 hours of technical or nontechnical electives, of which at least 6 
hours must be nontechnical and at least 4 technical. For this curricu- 
lum, technical electives are defined as most courses within the areas 
of physics, mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, computer science, 
and engineering. Among the 37 elective hours, one course must satisfy 
the general education Composition II requirement. (See the section on 
English requirements on pages 38 and 39.) 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

Applied Physics Options 

In consultation with his or her adviser, a student may elect an applied physics 
option. These options involve subjects related to physics that are of an applied 
nature and allow the student to focus on a specialized area. A student must 
register for an option in the physics undergraduate records office, where a list 
of approved courses is available. Planning for the option should begin during 
the sophomore year. Courses in these options may be taken under the various 
elective categories, or they may be substituted for certain advanced physics 
courses approved by the adviser. Each student must satisfy the social sciences 
and humanities requirements of the College of Engineering. Students entering 
in fall 1 994 and later must also satisfy the campus general education requirements 
for social sciences and humanities. The options are as follows:

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in General Engineering 

The general engineering curriculum provides a comprehensive pro- 
gram in the basic sciences, engineering sciences, and engineering 
design. The program was developed to give a broad background in 
mechanics and structures, control systems, and decision-making that 
is supportive of a systems approach to engineering. It is enriched by 
the use of computer-aided engineering tools and course experiences 
involving a design-build-test-evaluate ("closed-loop") cycle that ech- 
oes the real world. This learning culminates in an internship-like, 
senior-level project course in which student teams solve real-world 
problems posed by external sponsors. The curriculum also incorpo- 
rates specialized study in an approved secondary field of choice 
(described below) that provides virtually unlimited opportunity and 
flexibility to tailor the curriculum to one's interests. The College of 
Engineering's manufacturing and bioengineering options and inter- 
national minor may be incorporated into the curriculum through the 
secondary field and other electives. Through the capstone project 
course and a senior seminar, the curriculum teaches the life skill 
necessary for success in the professional world. Overall, this curricu- 
lum prepares students for graduate study and positions of managerial 
and technical leaderhip in careers in the public and private sectors. 
The curriculum requires 131 hours for graduation. It is effective fall 
1994 for first-year students.

SECONDARY FIELDS OF CONCENTRATION FOR THE 
UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN GENERAL ENGINEERING 

The secondary field requires a minimum of 12 hours of courses. 

Secondary fields are of two types: preapproved and customized. 
Preapproved fields have designated titles and a preapproved list of 
courses from which, in general, any 12 credit hours may be selected. 
However, substitutions of other courses may be requested via a 
petition form submitted to the department. Customized secondary 
fields may be created to fulfill student needs in areas beyond the 
preapproved ones. For customized secondary fields, a suitable title 
and all the courses must be petitioned for acceptance to the depart- 
ment. Approval is based on the merit of the secondary field and the 
coherence of the courses within it relative to the student's goals.

A revolution in materials technology is underway that will be a key 
factor in determining the outcome of global economic competition. 
Within the last several decades, the dominant materials of industrial 
society have been rapidly supplemented or replaced by new and 
better combinations. High-quality new materials and superior de- 
signs for function and for manufacturing are making possible im- 
proved products at minimal cost. The materials science and engineer- 
ing curriculum is designed to give students both a broad education in 
the fundamentals of all materials of economic importance, through 
the junior year core courses, and permit specialization in the senior 
year in one of the four major areas: ceramics, metals, polymers, and 
electronic materials. In addition to defined concentrations in these 
four areas, individual interdisciplinary concentrations can also be 
arranged. The senior year courses are directed at the processing, 



design, and characterization of the chosen material, complemented by 
a selection ol area electives and an in-depth course in an additional 
area of materials I he program can serve as the basis for graduate 
Study as well as the proper training for students choosing to enter 
industry dire< fly 

The curriculum requires 128 hours for graduation.

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Nuclear Engineering 

The curriculum in nuclear engineering provides students with com- 
prehensive study in basic sciences, basic engineering, the social sci- 
ences and humanities, and technical areas specific to nuclear engi- 
neering. It also provides a large, flexible selection of both technical 
electives and free electives that enables the student to emphasize 
breadth or depth of study or both. The curriculum not only prepares 
its graduates to enter directly into a wide variety of careers in nuclear 
engineering but also to continue formal education at the graduate 
level. 

Nuclear engineering is a branch of engineering primarily related 
to the development and use of nuclear energy sources, including (1) 
the continued application of fission reactors as central electric power 
plant thermal sources; (2) the longer term development of fusion 
reactors for electric power generation; and (3) the use of radiation 
sources in such areas as materials, biological systems, medical treat- 
ment, radiation instrumentation, and activation analysis. 

The following suggested course sequence would allow for gradu- 
ation in eight semesters. 

The curriculum requires 127 hours for graduation. A curriculum 
revision was pending at the time of publication. See a departmental 
adviser for more information.

NOTE: Students are required to have a specific area of specialization. This is 
accomplished by careful selection of technical electives and nuclear engineering 
electives to provide a minimum of three courses in the specialized area of study. 
Examples of such areas are power, materials, radiation protection, biological effect of 
radiation, thermal-hydraulics, fusion, and plasma engineering. A student who has 
selected an area of specialization may elect to substitute a more appropriate course for 
those specified as required in the above listing in order to begin a sequence. A course 
substitute must have as high a caliber and content as that being replaced .

Special Programs 

INDIVIDUAL STUDY PROGRAM 

Each curriculum offered by the College of Fine and Applied Arts is 
designed to develop professional competence in the specific area of 
studies noted on the degree. Therefore, an individual study program 
must ensure this professional development. A qualified student who 
has specific professional goals that are not met by the curricular 
offerings of the college may request an individual program of studies 
selected from courses offered by the University. Such a program must 
include the basic courses prerequisite for advanced study, require- 
ments of the University for graduation, general education require- 
ments of the college, and professional course work that will ensure the 
competence expected for the particular degree. 

To obtain approval for an individual study program, the student 
must submit his or her proposal in writing during the sophomore or 
junior year. The proposal should contain an outline of the complete 
program of course work, as well as an explanation of the professional 
goal desired. It should be discussed with and submitted to an ap- 
proved representative of the appropriate department or school con- 
cerned with the degree, who will then forward the proposal through 
the executive officer of the department or school for recommendation 
to the college office. Final consideration and notification of the action 
taken on the proposal will be made by the college office. 

STUDY ABROAD 

The college provides the opportunity for students to obtain campus 
credit for foreign study and /or travel for a period of from one 
semester to one calendar year. Students must submit detailed propos- 
als of plans for such study and /or travel for approval by the appropri- 
ate departmental committees and by the associate dean of the college 
prior to such study abroad. If approved, students register and retain 
their status as University students and may continue their student 
health insurance as if they continued to study at the Urbana-Cham- 
paign campus. 



HONORS AT GRADUATION 

At graduation, the College of Fine and Applied Arts grants honors to 
superior students. To be eligible, students must have completed a 
minimum of four semesters of work or 65 hours of credit in residence 
at the I rbana-Champaign campus. 

For the degree with honors, the student must have a grade-point 
average of 4.25 (A = 5.0) or better in all courses used for graduation and 
be in the upper 25 percent of those receiving that particular degree; for 
t he degree with high honors, a grade-point average of 4.5 or better and 
the upper 1 5 percent; and for the degree with highest honors, a grade- 
point average of 4.75 or better and the upper 6 percent. Credit earned 
at other institutions and transferred to the University of Illinois is used 
in computing the student's average. Credit earned at the University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign must be of at least the level required for 
the degree with honors. 

Requirements 

GRADUATION 

Students who meet the general University requirements with refer- 
ence to registration, residence, scholarship, fees, rhetoric, and general

The mission and educational intent of the School of Architecture is, in 
the broadest sense, concerned with the design of the built environ- 
ment and its relationship with the natural environment as directed 
toward and responding to the needs and aspirations of human pur- 
poses. Architectural education at Illinois provides first, at the under- 
graduate level, an in-depth professional preparation together with a 
base of liberal arts education; and second, at the graduate level, an 
appropriately diversified selection of professional options that allow 
students to gain depth in pursuit of individual interests that are 
applicable to current and future professional directions. 



College of Fine and Applied Arts 



In the rm.il analysis the goal oi the program is multifaceted 
Graduates should expect to prepare themselves foi active profes- 
sional roles and to gam knowledge oi architectural opportunities, 
problems issues, and challenges and ways to address them, ["hey will 
become familiar with the language oi the many disciplines that 
contribute to the shaping oi the built environment and to become 
aware oi past, present, and now applications oi information and 
knowledge. Additionally graduates also will develop a sense of 
confidence in their personal interpretation of the role of the profession 
m society and in their ability to become a vital part oi the practice of 
architecture 

DEGREE PROGRAMS IN ARCHITECTURE 

The School of Architecture otter- a tour-year preprofessional curricu- 
lum leading to the bachelor of science in architectural studies degree. 
The B.S.A.S. degree provides an undergraduate academic education 
in architecture that can serve as a foundation for advanced profes- 
sional education. The undergraduate curriculum offers an appropri- 
ate balanceof basic professional studies in architectural design, archi- 
tectural history, practice and technology, structures, and studies in the 
arts and sciences. 

School facilities are limited, and preference will be given to the 
best-qualified applicants until quotas are filled at both the under- 
graduate and graduate levels of the program. 

Since 1967, the School of Architecture has operated a one-year 
study abroad program in Versailles, France, which is open to qualified 
students on a priority basis. Course offerings parallel those available 
to students on the Urbana-Champaign campus but stress the Euro- 
pean context. 

The School of Architecture occupies drafting rooms, lecture rooms, 
and offices in the Architecture Building, Flagg Hall, and Temple 
Hoyne Buell Hall. The Ricker Library of Architecture and Art is 
located in the Architecture Building. 

UNDERGRADUATE CURRICULUM IN ARCHITECTURE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Architectural Studies 

In this curriculum, normal progress is imperative. A student failing to 
complete any required course more than one semester later than the 
time designated in the curriculum is prohibited from progressive 
registration in architectural courses until the deficiency is corrected. 
To continue at the sophomore level and beyond, a student must have 
a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 (A = 5.0) for all University 
course work attempted. For the bachelor of science in architectural 
studies degree, a total of 127 semester hours are required.

CURRICULUM IN PHOTOGRAPHY 



For the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography 

The curriculum in photography requires 122 credit hours; its purpose 
is to encourage the study of photographic media for personal expres- 
sion, to explore the social implications of pictures, and to develop the 
skills needed for careers in photography. General art requirements 
and electives provide a broad foundation in the visual arts, and 
photography courses provide a strong background in the history, 
theory, and practice of photography as art. 

A graduating senior will be required to complete a portfolio of 
photographs under the supervision of a photography faculty adviser. 
Students must provide certain materials in all photography studio 
classes. These include film, paper, and a fully adjustable 35mm or 120

Department of Dance 

4-501 Krannert Center for the Performing Arts 
500 South Goodwin 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-1010 

The Department of Dance is an autonomous unit in the College of Fine 
and Applied Arts, and, as such, is unique within the state. The resident 
dance faculty of seven full-time and one part-time member is aug- 
mented by visiting artists-in-residence. There are approximately forty- 
five undergraduate and fifteen graduate students enrolled in the 
major program. The teaching staff includes graduate teaching assis- 
tants who teach classes in modern dance, ballet, jazz, and tap for 
nondance majors. 

Program focus at the graduate and undergraduate levels is on the 
professional preparation of performers, choreographers, and studio 
teachers. Two degree programs are offered, leading to the bachelor of 
fine arts and master of fine arts degrees. This is primarily a contempo- 
rary dance department in choreographic and performance focus. 
Ballet and contemporary technique are integral components of train- 
ing; classes in jazz, tap, and theatre dance are also included in the 
major curriculum. Admission is by audition. 

The Department of Dance is located in the Krannert Center for the 
Performing Arts and utilizes the exceptional performing and produc- 
tion resources of the center. Four department concerts per year are 
produced in the theatres of the Krannert Center, including two con- 
certs of student choreography. Numerous opportunities for perfor- 
mance exist with the Illinois Dance Theatre, in faculty and student 
concerts, and in new music concerts and opera productions at the 
Krannert Center. 

CURRICULUM IN DANCE 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance 

The B.F.A. curriculum in dance is an intensive program of study for 
the dedicated student, offering concentration in the areas of tech- 
nique, composition, and performance. The curriculum also includes 
requirements in production, improvisation, music theory and litera- 
ture for dance, teaching, history, movement sciences, Alexander 
technique, theatre dance, and repertory. Electives may be taken in 
ballet, modern, tap, and jazz; advanced improvisation; labanotation; 
accompaniment; choreographer-composer workshop; and indepen- 
dent study. 

Program requirements include core daily technique classes con- 
sisting of three modern and two ballet classes per week each semester 
in residence, plus elective technique classes for a minimum of 1 
additional credit hour per semester. A minimum of two courses in 
other dance forms (jazz, tap, ballroom, etc.) is required. Technique 
placement is assigned by the faculty, and majors must achieve the 
advanced technical level in modern and the intermediate level in 
ballet for a minimum of two semesters prior to graduation. The 
improvisation/composition sequence consists of a minimum of 11 
hours of studio courses culminating in the performance of a senior 
choreographic project. A minimum of 6 hours of credit is required in 
performance/repertory courses. The curriculum includes as much as 
31 hours of credit in professional electives, which may be taken in 
professional dance courses and/or related arts and sciences. 

Evaluation of majors is an ongoing process. Continued enrollment 
in the program is contingent upon satisfactory performance. A stu- 
dent is expected to maintain a minimum 3.75 grade-point average in 
all professional course work and a 4.0 cumulative average in studio 
classes in order to remain in good standing in the department. 



Undergraduate Programs 



It is possible for transfer students to complete degree requirements 
in a three-year period contingent upon prior completion of general 
education requirements and the fulfillment of the advanced technique 
requirement for two semesters prior to graduation.

School of Music 

2134 Music Building 
114 West Nevada 
Urbana, IL 61801 
(217) 333-2620 

The School of Music occupies the Music Building, Smith Memorial 
Hall, the Harding Band Building, the Music Annex, and space in the 
Krannert Center for the Performing Arts. These facilities include 
studios, classrooms, practice and rehearsal rooms, experimental elec- 
tronic music and computer music laboratories, and a digital piano lab, 
as well as musical instruments, audio equipment, and several audito- 
riums used for concert, recital, opera, and musical theatre perfor- 
mances. 

The Music Library is one of the largest collections of music items 
in America. The faculty and students of the school present approxi- 
mately 350 concerts, recitals, and stage performances throughout the 
year, both on and off campus. In addition, visiting artists and scholars 
from throughout the world present master classes and lectures which 
complement the concert and academic offerings provided on the 
Urbana-Champaign campus. 

The school offers two professional undergraduate degrees: the 
bachelor of music and the bachelor of science in music education. 
Undergraduate students whose musical interests are in the broad 
historical, cultural, and theoretical aspects of music (rather than 
professional training) may want to investigate the bachelor of arts 
degree offered through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 
described on page 141. Graduate degrees are offered in a variety of 
fields of study at the master's and doctoral levels. 



Bands, choral ensembles, orchestras, jazz Kinds, new music en- 
sembles, world music ensembles, opera theatre, and many other 
musical organizations are open to music and nonmusic majors and 
members of the University and civic communities by audition Private 
lessons and courses in history, theory, and music appreciation are 
open to all qualified students in the University. 

All applicants for admission to the School of Music must apply to 
the University of Illinois and must also audition successfully on their 
major performance instrument or in voice. On-campus auditions are 
preferred, but taped auditions are acceptable under certain circum- 
stances. In addition, applicants for majors in music composition- 
theory and history of music must submit original scores or other 
pertinent writings to substantiate their ability to pursue work in these 
areas. Applicants in music education must also complete an interview 
with the music education faculty. 

For complete information concerning audition schedules, special 
admission requirements, and curricula, prospective students should 
contact the coordinator of undergraduate admissions, School of Mu- 
sic, 1114 West Nevada Street, Urbana IL 61801; (217) 244-0551.

(217) 333-2371 

The curricular options in the Department of Theatre provide intensive 
and extensive preparation for the rigorous demands of a professional 
career in the theatre. A strong commitment to work in the theatre and 
a realistic understanding of its intellectual, aesthetic, and physical 
demands is therefore necessary in students who enter the department. 

Before acceptance in the undergraduate programs in theatre, 
applicants must participate in one of several preadmission work- 
shops, which take place at the Krannert Center for the Performing Arts 
five or more weekends each year, and at selected regional locations 
(normally, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles). In 
these workshops, applicants who ultimately plan to pursue the cur- 
riculum in acting in their junior year should present a four-minute 
audition, comprised of two contrasting works from dramatic litera- 
ture. Applicants who ultimately wish to pursue a curriculum in 
design, technology, or management should present a portfolio of 
previous theatre work. Applicants who intend to pursue the perfor- 
mance studies curriculum should also bring a portfolio of their 
previous theatre work, an original two-page script written specifically 
for the workshop, and any other written work that reflects the student's 
interests and accomplishments. Information on these workshops will 
be sent to applicants once their admissibility to the University has 
been determined by the Office of Admissions and Records. 

Three curricula are offered in theatre: (1 ) the Professional Studio in 
Acting, (2) the Performance Studies Curriculum, and (3) the Division 
of Design Technology and Manangement, which has specialized 
options in scene design, costume design and construction, theatre 
technology and lighting, and stage management. Students are for- 
mally admitted to these curricula only after an evaluation by the 
faculty during the students' second year. The programs in acting and 
theatre design, technology, and management are intended for stu- 
dents who, in the judgement of the faculty, are ready to concentrate in 
these specialties in an intensive undergraduate professional training 
curriculum. The performance studies curriculum is intended for 
students who plan to pursue advanced training in theatre history, 
criticism, directing, and playwriting. 

The Department of Theatre sponsors the Illinois Repertory The- 
atre, which is one of the resident producing organizations of the 
Krannert ( enter lor the Performing Arts. Illinois Repertory Theatre 
produces eight fully mounted productions each academic year and 
three each summer. The theatres <u^\ workshops of the Krannert

PROFESSIONAL STUDIO IN ACTING 

The acting program provides intensive training in a wide variety of 
performing media. In the first and second years, students take intro- 
ductory courses in movement, voice, and acting. Near the end of their 
second year of study in the department, students must audition for 
acceptance into the professional studio in acting. In addition to 
successful completion of all classes in their first and second years, 
acceptance will be based on an evaluation of each student's potential 
for professional-caliber performance, commitment to theatre, and the 
necessary discipline for intensive study. Third- and fourth-year stu- 
dents meet in daily four-hour sessions, each of which includes sections 
in dynamics, voice and speech, movement, and acting. Semester-long 
acting sections include advanced scene study, musical theatre, 
Shakespeare, and acting for the camera. Students in the professional 
studio in acting must audition for Illinois Repertory Theatre produc- 
tions and perform one role each semester if cast.

PERFORMANCE STUDIES CURRICULUM 

The performance studies curriculum provides professional training 
in areas of theatre and related studies for which further advanced 
training or experience is necessary. The performance studies curricu- 
lum is intended to lay the groundwork for students planning to 
pursue professional careers in such areas as theatre history and 
criticism, directing, playwriting, and dramaturgy — areas in which a 
specialization at the graduate level is normally required. The perfor- 
mance studies curriculum provides both a working knowledge of a 
wide range of performance arts and a proficiency in research and 
writing skills associated with theatrical production and scholarship. 
Primary emphasis is given to students gaining a comprehensive 
knowledge of the drama and performance practices of the past and an 
understanding of current practice. 

After successful completion of the second year of study, students 
are admitted into the performance studies curriculum after a review 
of their work by the performance studies curriculum committee. 
Requirements include residence at the University during the last sixty 
hours of the program.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) has four missions: 
scholarly inquiry and the generation of knowledge, preparation of 
individuals for an array of careers and professions, service to the 
public, and the provision of the intellectual core of the University. The 
college shares the first three missions with professional schools and 
other colleges on this campus, but the last mission is uniquely the 
responsibility of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Fulfillment 
of that responsibility yields a diversified college uniquely valuable in 
contributing to the development of broadly educated individuals 
committed to or characterized by open inquiry, critical thinking, 
effective communication, and responsiveness to the needs of indi- 
viduals and society. 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is the largest individual 
college within a university setting in the state of Illinois. The college 
offers seventy-three undergraduate and ninety-six graduate degree- 
granting programs and enrolls more than 40 percent of the under- 
graduates on the Urbana-Champaign campus. The college serves the 
entire campus by providing a full range of required general education 
and service courses in basic disciplines. 

Students in the college are expected to understand the content and 
develop skills in areas that reflect the overall purpose of the college: 
fluency and facility in English; literacy in at least one foreign language; 
broad exposure to a number of different disciplines; and intensive 
study in one discipline (or an interdisciplinary program). The student 
has a wide choice of courses to satisfy these requirements; however, 
ultimately he or she must plan a diverse and intensive program of 
study, prepare for an occupational/professional and intellectual fu- 
ture, and develop that clarity and range of mind that is the goal of 
educated people.

Hall) for specific information. 

Requirements 



ADMISSIONS 

The general admission requirements and procedures of the College of 
Liberal Arts and Sciences are outlined in the Admission section (see 
page 11). These requirements were established to enable students 
admitted here to make the most effective use of the facilities of the 
University. The requirements should ensure that entering students 
have the capability of completing a degree program successfully. 

While the admission patterns oi high school subjects required for 
admission are necessary for the student to be able to compete success- 
fully at this University, th< JSereqi i in •incuts, ire minimal. Several other 

mendations for Inch s< hool subje< ts are listed below. 
Kmen to «el as broad and as 



rigorous a preparation as possible in high school. In particular, stu- 
dents should continue electing academic subjects throughout the 
senior year. 

English: The college strongly recommends that students complete 
four full years of English in high school. 

Mathematics: Although mathematics is not required in all degree 
programs in the college, many of the programs do require some 
mathematics. A minimum preparation is two years of algebra and one 
year of geometry; a fourth year of college preparatory mathematics is 
strongly encouraged. A solid foundation in mathematics will assist 
students in taking full advantage of educational opportunities at the 
University. 

Beginning with the fall 1989 freshman class, students may not use 
credit in algebra (sometimes called "college algebra") toward LAS 
degrees; specifically, students may not use credit in MATH 112 or its 
equivalent toward LAS degrees. Please refer to the LAS Student 
Handbook for details. 

Science: Some knowledge of science is necessary in our technology- 
oriented society. Students should elect at least two years of laboratory 
science in high school. 

Foreign language: Because successful completion of four years of a 
single language in secondary school will satisfy the college foreign 
language degree requirement, students should include as much for- 
eign language as possible in their secondary school programs. Those 
students who have not had some foreign language during the junior 
and senior years of high school may find it helpful to review the 
language before taking the placement examination after being admit- 
ted to the college. 

ADVISING 

Academic advising is a critical resource for students in developing a 
program of study. Especially on a large campus, a continuing, com- 
mitted association with a faculty member can be a valuable and 
rewarding part of the student's educational experience. Advisers are 
available to aid students in choosing majors, planning for career 
choices, and selecting courses for each semester. All students in 
degree programs in the college have academic advisers available in 
their major departments. In addition, the assistant and associate deans 
in the college assist students in handling a variety of problems and 
questions. 

In order to simplify minor changes in course selections, a student 
who has successfully completed at least 30 semester hours of course 
work and who understands the requirements of the college and the 
University may choose courses without obtaining approval from an 
academic adviser unless informed otherwise by the college. A student 
does need to obtain approval from an adviser for a number of 
arrangements, including a formal plan of study for the major and the 
election of the credit-no credit grading option. A student may be 
requested by the college office to obtain approval from an adviser 
and/or the dean for all course changes under certain circumstances. 
It is very important for advanced students to confer with advisers on 
a regular basis; therefore, the college encourages all students to 
consult with their academic advisers at least once each year. 

One particular resource for a student in the college who has not 
decided on a plan of study is the general curriculum. The general 
curriculum is an advising center for students who want to investigate 
a variety of subjects before selecting their majors or who have decided 
on programs that require transfer at the sophomoreor junior level. The 
general curriculum is not a degree program and does not serve as a 
formal program of study. Entering freshmen and continuing students 
with less than 45 semester hours of credit may elect to enter the general 
curriculum and may remain in the program until they complete 56 
academic semester hours. The office provides individual advising; 
group orientation sessions; and printed materials describing majors, 
curricula, and many career opportunities. Students in the general 
curriculum are LAS students and must follow LAS policies and 
regulations. The general curriculum office serves as the college office 
for students in the program. 

Another special resource in the college is qualified advising for 
students who are interested in law school. An assistant dean in the 
college office (270 Lincoln Hall) counsels students who have declared 
a prelaw interest. All such students are encouraged to consult the 
prelaw adviser. Students preparing for law school may elect any 
major; they need not consider themselves restricted in the choice of 
decree |>i o)',i ,ims. To assist students planning prelaw programs, a 



College of Liberal Arts t 



facult) committee in the college has prepared .1 handbook for students 
on prelaw advising For Further Information, contact the prelaw 
adviser at 270 1 incoln 1 [all 

Honors Programs 

DEANS LIST 

1 a< h semester, student- are recognized by the college for placement 
on the Dean s List. Those students are eligible \\ ho meet the follow ing 
criteria and are in the top 20 percent ol their classes. To be eligible foi 
Dean's 1 ist recognition, you must have completed at least 1 4 hours of 
course work, excluding mili tar) and religious foundation courses and 
graduate-level courses taken for unit credit. Ol these 14 hours,. it least 
12 hours must be earned in courses taken tor traditional letter grades, 
which excludes courses graded credit/no credit, satisfactory unsat- 
isfactory, and test-based credit, which is graded pass tail Course 
work completed through study abroad may be included in determin- 
ing Dean's List eligibility, subject to these same limitations, Students 
with work graded excused or deterred are not considered for the 
Dean's List until grades have been submitted for that work. These 
students should notif) the honors dean when such work has been 
completed it they expect to be placed on the Dean's List. 

JAMES SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The official honors program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences 
is called the Edmund J. James Scholar Program. This program allows 
students with exceptional ability to pursue rigorous academic courses 
of study and provides the opportunity for those students to meet with 
faculty members who are particularly interested in honors programs. 
There are honors advisers available in the respective departments and 
an honors dean in the college office. James Scholars register in some 
special honors courses, sections, seminars, and colloquia; they may 
also arrange individualized honors credit agreements for specific 
courses. James Scholars have open access to the University Library 
stacks (ordinarily open only to graduate students and the faculty); 
such access to library stacks is particularly helpful for students in- 
voked in independent study and /or undergraduate research projects. 
James Scholars also have their program requests processed early to 
minimize conflicts in scheduling honors courses. 

Any qualified LAS student may become a James Scholar Designate 
or Nominee. Entering freshmen who are in the top 15 percent of the 
admitted class are invited immediately into the program as James 
Scholar Designates. Each continuing student in the college must 
maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 4.5 and must complete 
two honors courses during the academic year. In order to remain in the 
program as James Scholar Nominees, students must satisfy the re- 
quirements for continuing students (i.e., 4.5 GPA and two honors 
courses). Official certification of James Scholar standing on the Uni- 
versity transcript is made at the end of the academic year (upon 
completion of these requirements). 

Further information about the James Scholar program is available 
from the college office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

ROGERS MERIT SCHOLAR PROGRAM 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences has established the Robert W. 
Rogers Merit Scholarship program for highly qualified freshmen. A 
freshman chosen as a Robert W. Rogers Scholar enrolls in any curricu- 
lum in the college and is awarded SI ,000 for the year; the award may 
be renewed for the sophomore year if the student maintains at least a 
4.5 (A = 5.0) grade-point average and continues in the college. Admit- 
ted freshmen with the highest qualifications are invited to apply. The 
selection of a Rogers Scholar is made by a faculty committee and based 
on exceptional scholastic achievement, high performance on either 
the ACT or SAT examination, and evidence of leadership in the school 
or community. No more than twelve new awards are made each year. 

COHN SCHOLARS HONORS PROGRAM IN THE HUMANITIES 

The Cohn Scholars Program provides intellectual and financial sup- 
port and special academic opportunities for a small group of highly 
qualified freshmen majoring in the humanities. Each Cohn Scholar 
participates in a yearlong tutorial in his or her field of interest (or in a 
closely related field) with a faculty mentor from one of the humanities 
disciplines. The tutorial offers each student the opportunity to interact 
with a faculty member on an individual basis through intensive study 
in a selected subject. 



t ohn s < holars also enroll in a two-semester course sequence in 
western civilization ottered bv the Department of History or the 
Program in C omparatn e I iterature, with special discussion sections. 
Periodic seminars feature informal discussions among students and 
invited faculty members on selected topics. Cohn Scholars participate 
m spe< ial campus activities designed to acquaint them with some of 
the University's many academic and cultural resources. 

Applications to the program are invited in early spring from 
highly qualified high school students who have been admitted for the 
following year to one of the humanities departments or programs in 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Potential students are se- 
lected by a faculty committee on the basis of an application, high 
si In ml i lass rank, and performance in a competitive entrance exami- 
nation (ACT or SAT). Inquiries should be addressed to the Cohn 
S holars Program, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 294 Lincoln 
Hall, Urbana, II 61801. 

HONORS AT GRADUATION 

College honors at graduation are awarded on the basis of academic 
excellence and satisfaction of one of the following: (1) successful 
completion of 25 hours of honors courses (including work taken on 
honors credit learning agreements); (2) successful completion of 35 
hours of advanced hours course work; or (3) earning departmental 
distinction. Provided that one of the requirements above is satisfied, 
the award of college honors is made according to the following ranges: 
cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a student in the 
top 12 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 7 percent; 
magna cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a student 
in the top 7 percent of the graduating class but not in the top 3 percent; 
and summa cum laude, if the college grade-point average places a 
student in the top 3 percent of the graduating class. 

DEPARTMENTAL DISTINCTION 

Students who have shown exceptional competence in one or more 
areas of study may earn distinction in their major(s) or curricula. 
Criteria for awarding distinction are established by the departments. 
Students interested in working for distinction should consult their 
honors adviser early in the junior year. Specific information about 
requirements is available from the departmental and curriculum 
advisers. Generally, in addition to meeting the scholastic require- 
ments and the minimum requirements for a major, a student gradu- 
ating with departmental distinction must satisfy at least one of the 
following requirements: (1) presentation of an acceptable thesis; (2) 
satisfactory performance on a comprehensive examination prepared 
by the major department; or (3) completion of a special course of study 
of at least four semester hours approved by the major department. 

A student who has completed a curriculum in teacher education 
and has shown superior ability in that area may be recommended for 
distinction in the teacher education program. Information about 
requirements may be obtained from the adviser in the area of special- 
ization. 

PHI BETA KAPPA 

Invitations for membership into Phi Beta Kappa, the nation's oldest 
honor society, are sent to outstanding students in Liberal Arts and 
Sciences each April. Eligibility requires rank in the top 7 percent of 
seniors in LAS, as well as a minimum number of graded hours and 
appropriate course distribution. Precise criteria and detailed informa- 
tion may be obtained from the chapter secretary, Dr. Susan Gonzo, 
Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Swanlund Build- 
ing, University of Illinois, 601 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820, 
(217) 333-8159. 

AWARDS 

There are a number of prizes and awards available to outstanding 
students in certain areas of the college. A department will generally 
notify the student of the possibility of such an award; however, an 
interested student may obtain information on the awards from the 
college office, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

Combined Degree Programs 



LAS/ENGINEERING 

For a number of years, the Colleges of Liberal Arts and Sciences and 
Engineering have jointly sponsored a five-year program leading to a 
B.A. or B.S. degree in liberal arts and sciences and a B.S. degree in a 



Undergraduate Programs 



field of engineering. The program allows motivated students to 
combine a professional engineering education with a broad liberal 
arts background. Students are required to complete all the degree 
requirements of both colleges. 

Freshmen normally apply for entrance through the College of 
Engineering, but students who have applied to and been accepted by 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences may be able to enter the 
program. All students must meet the entrance requirements of both 
colleges. In addition, they may be required to meet the intercollegiate 
transfer requirements of both colleges. For further information about 
the program see page 85 and consult your college office. 

LAS/COMMERCE 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences together with the College of 
Commerce and Business Administration offers two joint-degree pro- 
grams that lead to the degrees of B. A. or B.S. in liberal arts and sciences 
and M.A.S. or M.B.A. Each program takes five years to complete. 
These programs allow students to complete master's programs in 
accounting or business administration while they provide students 
with the broad opportunities unique to a liberal arts program. For 
further description, see page 164. Students interested in these oppor- 
tunities should contact the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 
Lincoln Hall for additional information and advising. 

Study Abroad Programs 

Many students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences seek the 
educational, linguistic, and cultural benefits from a semester or a year 
of study in a foreign country. To facilitate such study abroad, the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences sponsors a number of special 
study abroad programs and provides for student participation in 
these and other programs. There are three general categories of 
programs: (1) a program enabling students to study at approved 
foreign institutions of their choice; (2) special study abroad programs 
sponsored by units of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; and (3) 
participation in cooperative programs sponsored by other universi- 
ties or groups of universities. 

LAS STUDY ABROAD 

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences supports the Study Abroad 
Office to aid students who plan to study at approved foreign institu- 
tions or in programs of their choice other than those offered by 
departments within the college itself . The option is open not only to

Building, 707 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, II. 61801. 

SPANISH: SUMMER PROGRAM IN ARGENTINA 

The Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese sponsors a six- 
week summer course at the University of Belgrano in Buenos Aires, 
Argentina from approximately the end of May to early July. Students 
are required to enroll in two courses, Spanish Language and Contem- 
porary Argentine Literature or Spanish Language and Twentieth- 
Century Latin American History, for which they will receive 6 hours 
credit on their University of Illinois transcript. Weekend excursions to 
sites of historical and cultural interest are an important component of 
the program. Students are housed with Argentine families in various 
neighborhoods a nd suburbs of Buenos Aires, which provides them an 
excellent opportunity to experience Argentine culture and family life 
and to practice their Spanish language skills. A minimum of 4 semes- 
ters of college-level Spanish or equivalent and a cumulative Univer- 
sity average of "B" are the basic requirements for admission. The 
program is open to undergraduates in any major who have at least 
junior standing and to graduate students. 

Interested students should first contact the Study Abroad Office, 
115 International Studies Building, 910 South Fifth Street, Champaign, 
IL 61820. For information regarding University course equivalencies, 
students may then contact Professor Thomas C Meehan, Department 
of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese, 4080 Foreign Languages Building, 
707 South Mathews Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801. 

SPANISH: SUMMER PROGRAM IN MEXICO 

The University of Illinois participates in the eight-week summer 
program of Spanish at the Universidad de Guanajuato, sponsored by 
the Committee on Institutional Cooperation. Students should be in 
good academic standing and have at least a 4.0 (A = 5.0) grade-point 
average in Spanish. Students accepted in the program should have 
competence in Spanish equivalent to the third year of college study. 
Interested students should obtain further information from the 
Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese, University of Illinois 
at Urbana-Champaign, 4080 Foreign Languages Building, 707 South 
Mathews Avenue, Urbana, IL 61801. 

Opportunities for Multidisciplinary Study 

A number of opportunities for multidisciplinarv study are available in 
the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, and a number of units in the 
college are devoted to the multidisciplinary study of various areas, 
cultures, and subjects. Some of these units sponsor interdisciplinary 
majors; others do not have formal majors, but have arrangements for 
faculty members to assist students in planning programs appropriate- 
to individual needs. Also, some units sponsor interdis* iplinary mi- 
nors that may be completed in conjunction with a sciences and letters 
curriculum degree program (i.e., a degree program with a traditional 
major in LAS). For details, see following information. 



MULTIDISCIPLINARY MAJORS 

There are three area studies programs with majors in the college: East 

Asian and Pacific Studies, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and 

Russian and East European Studies. Descriptions of these majors may 
be found in the section on degree requirements tor majors. (See also 
the section titled Curriculum in Sciences and Letters: General Require- 
ments, below.) 

INFORMAL MULTIDISCIPLINARY OPPORTUNITIES 

The following units do not have formal degree programs; however, 
the units have interdisciplinary minors, assist students interested in 
those subjects, and coordinate research efforts in those areas. 

CENTER FOR AFRICAN STUDIES 

The Center for African Studies is concerned with all aspects of African 
affairs and cultures. The center sponsors instruction in African lan- 
guages and cultures, offering a number of African studies courses 
each semester. The center administers an interdisciplinary minor for 
undergraduates, and an undergraduate major in African studies can 
be arranged through Individual Plans of Study (IPS). Support for 
graduate students and arrangements for field experiences in Africa 
are also concerns of the center. The Center for African Studies is 
located at 210 International Studies Building, 910 South First Street, 
Champaign, IL 61820. 

AFRO-AMERICAN STUDIES AND RESEARCH PROGRAM 

This program integrates interdisciplinary curricular offerings from 
the social sciences and the humanities, with a concentration on blacks 
in North America. The unit sponsors an interdisciplinary minor in the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. The program offers a core set of 
courses in Afro- American studies along with additional courses cross- 
listed with other departments each semester. The Afro-American 
Studies office is located at 606 South Gregory Street, Urbana, IL 61801; 
(217)333-7781. 

WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAM 

The Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic unit 
designed to teach, coordinate, and develop women's studies courses 
and advise undergraduate students. With over 40 affiliated faculty 
members, the program also initiates activities and programs to main- 
tain and expand scholarship on women and gender issues. Goals and 
objectives include continuing to foster the development of both core 
and cross-listed course offerings encompassing the diversity of 
women's experiences, including a women and science/engineering 
component; developing an undergraduate major; continuing support 
for campuswide efforts to integrate scholarship on women and gen- 
der issues in general education courses; and increasing the visibility of 
women's scholarly contributions on campus and in the community. 
An additional vital aim is attracting more minority faculty and 
students. 

The unit sponsors an interdisciplinary women's studies minor for 
students in the sciences and letters curriculum. For students complet- 
ing a degree program in teacher education who want to be able to 
teach women's studies in primary and secondary schools, the unit has 
a teacher education minor in women's studies. Students who wish to 
develop individual minors in women's studies through Individual 
Plans of Study (IPS) may also obtain advising from the Women's 
Studies Program, located at 911 South Sixth Street, Champaign, IL 
61820. 

Curriculum in Sciences and Letters 



DEGREES GRANTED 

A student completing this curriculum receives the degree of bachelor 
of arts or bachelor of science in liberal arts and sciences, depending on 
the student's major. A student electing one of the majors in the 
physical sciences, life sciences, psychology, mathematics, or statistics 
will receive the bachelor of science degree. A student in any of the 
other majors will receive the bachelor of arts degree. 

COMPONENTS OF THE CURRICULUM 

The sciences and letters curriculum consists of several distinct parts, 
all of which are considered by the college to be necessary for a liberal 
education. Below is an outline of the components of the degree 
program. A detailed discussion of each component follows. 



Undergraduate Programs 



General Requirements 



ENGLISH COMPOSITION REQUIREMENT 

The ability to write effectively is a cornerstone of a liberal education. 
All students in the sciences and letters curriculum must satisfy the 
campus rhetoric requirement. See pages 38 and 39 for a statement of 
the requirement. Students are strongly encouraged to include addi- 
tional writing courses in their programs whenever possible. 

FOREIGN LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT 

Each student in the sciences and letters curriculum is expected to learn 
a foreign language in the undergraduate program. A minimum expec- 
tation is that the student obtain a knowledge equivalent to the comple- 
tion of the fourth semester of college study in a language. Some 
programs may require additional study or the study of a specific 
language. A student planning on graduate study may wish to consult 
the department of intended graduate study about language require- 
ments for the graduate program. This may dictate the student's choice 
of language study during undergraduate work. The foreign language 
requirement may be met in any of the following ways: 

1 . Satisfactory completion of four years of the same foreign language 
in high school; 

2. Satisfactory completion of the fourth-semester level of a language 
in college; 

3. Satisfactory completion of the third-semester level in each of two 
languages by any combination of high school and college work; 

4. Satisfactory performance at the fourth-semester level in a lan- 
guage proficiency examination approved by the College of Liberal 
Arts and Sciences and the appropriate department. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

General education courses are the foundation vehicle for the college's 
unique mandate: the provision of the intellectual core of undergradu- 
ate study at the University. Through these required courses, each 
student in the college is expected to obtain an understanding of the 
ways in which knowledge is acquired and used in the diverse disci- 
plines represented by the University's curricula. The graduate must 
have some acquaintance with literature and the arts, history, philo- 
sophical inquiry, and the insights and techniques of the social sci- 
ences, as well as the aims and methods of the natural sciences. 

Students are therefore required to complete broadly distributed 
course work in two general areas: one in the arts and social sciences, 
the other in mathematics and the sciences. Students must take at least 
ten courses: five in Area I (arts and social sciences) and five in Area II 
(mathematics and science). The specific list of the distribution of 
courses is given in Components of the Curriculum, page 126. The LAS 
Student Handbook provides a list of courses approved for each of the 
general education categories, and current lists may be obtained in the 
LAS Student Office, 270 Lincoln Hall, during advance enrollment. 

The general education categories and their purposes are briefly 
described below, together with an abbreviated listing of some of the 
disciplines from which courses for these categories are drawn. 
Literature and the Arts. To consider the literary, visual, and perform- 
ing arts as aesthetic or creative achievements. (English, language 
departments, art history, music) 
Historical and Philosophical Perspectives. To understand both the 
events and ideas of the past, thus acquiring a fresh perspective on 
the present; to understand the major philosophical issues thai 
confront human beings. (( lassical civilization, history, philoso- 
phy, religious studies) 
Social Perspectives. To acquire an understanding of social contexts 
and institutions. (Anthropology, economics, geography, political 
k iem e, •« iology) 
Non-Western ( ulluresand Traditions. To attain a broad awareness 
of the values and traditions of people from different cultures. 
(African tudie . anthropology, Asian studies, history, religious 

I ,S Minority Cultures. To attain an understand ingot the values and 

ditions of the diva i f minority groups in the U.S. 

Biological Sciences. I trucrure and function of life 

forms, then ecological oi thi ii evolutionarj relationships, and 

their ommunity (Anthropology; biol- 

ethol tii n; entomology; mil robiology; 

physiology; 



Physical Sciences. To comprehend the major aspects of the physical 
world and to become conversant with the nature of scientific 
inquiry. (Astronomy, chemistry, geography, geology, physics) 

Behavioral Sciences. To study individual human behavior. (Psychol- 
ogy) 

Mathematics. To study a substantial mathematical endeavor or to 
explore the scientific and humanistic import of mathematics. (Math- 
ematics, computer science, statistics) 

Students are urged to consult with their advisers regarding the 
choice of courses to complement their programs and to meet educa- 
tional objectives. Some of the approved courses have prerequisites. 

NOTES: 

— The credit-no credit option may not be used for courses that satisfy general 

education requirements. 

— There are no limits on the number of courses from a single department that ma v be 

used to satisfy the requirements. 

— Courses taken to satisfy major requirements may also be used to satisfy general 

education requirements provided they are on current general education lists. 

— A student who successfully completes a College-Level Examination Program 

(CLEP) general examination in an area of study, using University of Illinois 
standards, will receive a waiver of the requirement in that area and, in certain 
cases, course credit. See the LAS Student Handbook for details. 

— Students who receive college credit for Advanced Placement (AP) work will find 

that some course credit generally will apply toward the relevant requirement. For 
example, AP scores of 4 or 5 in English Literature will provide 3 semester hours of 
credit in English 103 and, therefore, count toward the requirement for literature 
and the arts. See page 29 for current credit policies for AP examinations. 

— Similarly, proficiency credit received through a department's own testing progTam 

may be used to satisfy general education requirements. 

— Students planning to study in specialized curricula or in teacher education curricula 

will be subject to the requirements as indicated elsewhere in this catalog rather 
than the above requirements.

MAJOR 

Each student in the sciences and letters curriculum is expected to 
study a single discipline in some depth as well as obtain mastery of any 
related course work necessary for careful study of the chosen disci- 
pline. This portion of the student's program of study is called the 
major. 

The major consists of approximately 40 to 60 hours of course work 
designated by the department and approved by the faculty of the 
college. Most majors will have a portion of the required course work 
in subjects relating to the major and supporting the major, but not 
chosen from courses in the major department; this is called the 
supporting course work. The major will have at least one-half of the 
course work selected or designated from courses numbered 200 and 
above. 

There are forty majors from which students may choose, and a 
number of them have multiple options within the major. A complete 
list of the majors available can be found on pages 121 and 122. The 
major should be chosen no later than the junior year. Since most 
majors require that the student choose courses in consultation with a 
faculty adviser, students should plan to discuss the major with a 
faculty adviser early in the junior year. In most cases, a student will be 
expected to submit to the college a written list of courses for the major 
(the major plan) during the junior year. 

Since the major is a required portion of the sciences and letters 
curriculum, students must take all course work for the minimum 
requirements of the major for a traditional letter grade (or on the 
satisfactory-unsatisfactory basis). The credit-no credit grading option 
may not be used for courses in the major. 

The satisfactory completion of a major requires not only the 
completion of a stated amount of course work, but also that the 
student earn at least a 3.0 average in courses for the major. In order to 
giaduate, a student should earn at least a 3.0 grade-point average in all 
courses that are included in the major average and taken on this 
campus and at least a 3.0 average in all courses that are included in the 
major average and taken here and elsewhere. Consult the department 
or the college office for a list of courses included in the major average 
for a specific concentration. 

Each student is expected to complete a minimum amount of 
advanced course work for the major on this campus. Specifically, a 
student normally completes on this campus at least 12 hours of 
advanced core course work (course work within the department) in 
the major. 

ADVANCED HOURS REQUIREMENT 

A liberal arts program requires study in a number of areas (general 
education requirements) and study in some depth. Thus, each student 
is expected to complete a minimum portion of the undergraduate 
program in courses that presume some prior knowledge of the disci- 
pline. A course is considered advanced if it presumes such prior 
knowledge as indicated by the faculty (specially designated 200-level 
courses), by the course number (most courses numbered 300 or 
above), by the prerequisites necessary for enrollment in the course, or 
by the quality and depth of work expected of students in the course. 



All students in the sciences and letters curriculum are expected to 
complete at leasl 21 hours ol courses designated as advanced by the 
college in order to graduate. All such courses must be taken at 
baccalaureate-granting institutions. Courses designated as advanced 
,i ret hose courses numbered 300 or above and those 200-level courses 
that are specially designated as ad vanced. A list of such ad vanced 200- 
level courses may be found in the 1 AS Student Handbook. 

MINORS AND INTERDISCIPLINARY MINORS 

The college offers a formal system ol minors which may be completed 
in conjunction with a major in the sciences and letters curriculum. A 
minor is a coherent program of study (generally 18-24 hours) requir- 
ing some depth in the subject, but is not as extensive as the major. 
Requirements tor minors (see page 147) are determined by the depart- 
ment and approved by the college. Minors are optional. Students do 
not have to complete a minor as part of their degree requirements, 
though some majors may allow use of a minor in place of other 
supporting course work. 

The minor may be completed and noted only at the time of 
completion of a bachelor's degree in LAS (in the sciences and letters 
curriculum). While the minor does not replace other degree require- 
ments, courses may be used both for the minor and to meet other 
degree requirements as appropriate. The student should notify LAS of 
intention to complete a minor at the beginning of the student's senior 
year so that its completion may be verified. A list of requirements for 
approved minors is available in the LAS Student Office, 270 Lincoln 
Hall. 

There are several interdisciplinary areas in which there currently 
are no formal degree programs, but in which scholarly needs or 
employment demands require recognition. In these areas, the college 
offers an interdisciplinary minor. The interdisciplinary minor differs 
from the standard minor in that it may require attainment of a 
predetermined and approved grade-point average in the courses for 
the program and students are required to consult with an adviser 
regarding selection of course work. The student should notify the unit 
of the interdisciplinary minor at the beginning of the student's final 
semester before graduation so that the completion of the interdiscipli- 
nary minor may be verified; the college generally cannot monitor 
completion of the interdisciplinary minor. Currently, the interdisci- 
plinary minors are those in African Studies, Afro-American Studies, 
Latin American Studies, and Women's Studies. 

ELECTIVES 

Most liberal arts majors allow time in the student's program for a 
number of courses chosen freely from among the University's offer- 
ings. These courses, called electives, may be used to prepare for 
professional study, to prepare for business and career opportunities, 
or simply to explore additional interests. In addition to all courses 
used to fulfill the minimum graduation requirements of the college 
(rhetoric, foreign language, general education, and major), a student 
following a major may use as electives: 

— Courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences; 

— Courses offered by departments and schools in other colleges of 
the University that sponsor majors in LAS [art (excluding applied 
art courses), computer science, economics, finance, music (exclud- 
ing applied music courses), or physics]; 

— A maximum of 24 hours (to be counted toward graduation) of 
courses not included in either of the above, that is, courses offered 
by departments and schools in other colleges on campus. Examples 
of courses in this category are accounting, business administration, 
engineering, applied art courses, and applied music courses. As of 
August 1994, the Department of Atmospheric Sciences is in the 
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

Undergraduate students of high academic standing (i.e., a 4.0 
grade-point average or higher in courses taken beyond the sophomore 
level) within 10 semester hours of earning their bachelor's degrees 
may elect courses in the Grad uate College for graduate credit with the 
consent of the dean of that college. Also, students with senior standing 
may petition the Graduate College for permission to elect graduate 
courses for undergraduate credit. Interested students should first 
consult the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 270 Lincoln Hall. 

RESIDENCE 

Students must satisfy the University residence requirement for gradu- 
ation( page 38). They must complete on this campus, uninterrupted by 
work elsewhere, either the first three years (at least 90 hours of course 



Undergraduate Programs 



work) or the last year (at least 30 hours). The hours must be applicable 
toward the degree sought. In addition, all students must earn 60 hours 
of course work at four-year (baccalaureate-granting) institutions after 
any work at community colleges. Students in the sciences and letters 
curriculum are expected to earn at least 12 hours of credit in advanced 
courses in the core for the major on this campus (see Advanced Hours 
Requirement, above). 

TOTAL HOURS 

A total of 120 semester hours acceptable toward the degree is required 
for graduation in the sciences and letters curriculum. 

Students should be aware that there are several specific limitations 
on the amount of particular kinds of credit that may be used in the 120 
hours: no repeated courses; no more than 24 elective hours outside the 
college, as discussed above; no more than 4 hours of credit in basic 
kinesiology courses; no more than 1 1 hours of credit in calculus and 
analytic geometry; no more than 12 hours of credit in basic physics; no 
more than 15 hours of credit in 100-level life science courses toward an 
SOLS major; no more than 9 hours of credit in basic rhetoric courses; 
no more than 10 hours of first- and second-year foreign language 
proficiency; no more than 24 hours of credit in aviation courses (must 
be from the pilot training curriculum); no more than 6 hours of credit 
in ROTC courses; no more than 4 hours of credit in religious founda- 
tion courses; no more than 12 hours of credit in undergraduate open 
seminar ( 1 99 course); and no more than 1 8 hours of credit in indepen- 
dent study and 199 courses. See the LAS Student Handbook for details 
about the credit limitations in each of these areas. 

Students matriculating at some college or university in June 1989 
or later may not use credit in algebra (MATH 112 or equivalent) 
toward a baccalaureate degree in the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences. In addition, students in the programs requiring trigonom- 
etry for admission (e.g., the specialized curricula in chemical engi- 
neering, chemistry, and physics) may not use credit in trigonometry 
(MATH 1 14 or equivalent) toward an LAS degree. See the LAS Student 
Handbook for further details. 

Sciences and Letters Majors 

For the Degree of Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in 
Liberal Arts and Sciences 



ACTUARIAL SCIENCE 

This major is sponsored by the Department of Mathematics. See page 
140. 

ANTHROPOLOGY 

Anthropology Courses. 36 hours (including ANTH 102,103, 220, 230, 

240, and 270). 

Supporting Course Work. 18 hours (chosen in consultation with an 

adviser). 

Anthropology, which views human biology, behavior and society 
(both past and present) in a cross-cultural perspective, combines 
scientific and humanistic interests in a modern social sciences frame- 
work. It includes of biological anthropology (biological diversity and 
evolutionary history of human and nonhuman primates), archaeol- 
ogy (hum, in prehistory and the organization and growth of technol- 
ogy), sodocultural anthropology (comparative study of social struc- 
turesand institutions from hunter-gatherer settings to urban settings), 
and anthropological linguistics (comparative study of languages and 
communications). Although the student should strive for a topical 
and geographical balance, an undergraduate may specialize in one "I 
these four branches and also may study some world cultural area 
intensively through an area studies program. Anthropology is an 
appropriate major for those seeking a general liberal education; for 
those preparing f oi prof essional study and < areers in law, medicine, 

and lor those p|, inning further graduate study in

tists and tea< hers in museums, universities, and archaeological sur- 
veys oi go ernmenl agencies, social service

ofhumai important 



REQUIREMENTS 

The 36 hours in anthropology must include ANTH 102,103 (or 104 for 
honors students), 220, 230, 240, and 270. Four courses totalling at least 
1 2 hours in anthropology must be at thead vanced level (generally 291 , 
293, and 300-level courses); only one of these four courses may be 
ANTH 398. All students must discuss their selection of anthropology 
courses and supporting course work with a departmental adviser 
Students must take 18 hours of supporting course work in another 
department. At least 9 hours of the supporting course work must be 
at the advanced level. Students may substitute an official minor 
offered by another department as long as the supporting course work 
hours and level requirements are met. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student 
must maintain a 4.6 average in 40 hours of anthropology courses, 
including at least 2 hours of ANTH 291 and at least 2 hours of ANTH 
293, and submit a thesis for judgment by the departmental honors 
board. 

ART HISTORY 

Art History Courses. 32 hours (including ARTHI 111 and 112). 
Supporting Course Work. 15 hours (chosen in consultation with an 
adviser). 

Like the other humanities, the history of art as an undergraduate 
major offers an enrichment of and a preparation for life, rather than 
training for a specific occupation. The student who goes on to gradu- 
ate work in the field can look forward to becoming a teacher of the 
subject, to membership on the staff of a museum, or to employment in 
a commercial art gallery. 

Working in consultation with the undergraduate adviser for art 
history, each student will design a program of study that satisfies the 
requirements listed below. Students who wish to take a considerable 
number of studio courses as part of their major should enroll in the 
history of art option offered by the School of Art and Design within the 
College of Fine and Applied Arts. 

REQUIREMENTS 

1. Courses in the History of Art and Architecture. ARTHI 111 and 
1 1 2 and at least 24 hours of art history in 200- and 300-level courses, 
including one 3-hour course in each of the following areas: (a) 
ancient and medieval art; (b) Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo 
art; (c) late eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century art; and 
(d) African, Asian, Oceanic, and pre-Columbian art. Courses in the 
history of architecture, excluding ARCH 210, may be used with the 
approval of the adviser for as many as 12 hours of credit in meeting 
the 24-hour requirement. 

2. Foreign Language. French or German is strongly recommended 
for fulfilling the foreign language requirement; however, another 
language may be used with the approval of the adviser as the needs 
of the student's program dictate. A student who has decided to 
make the history of Oriental art his or her major study area in 
undergraduate and graduate work would be well advised to 
satisfy the foreign language requirement with Chinese or Japanese 
rather than with a European language. 

3. Supporting Course Work. At least 15 hours of courses at the 200 
and 300 levels in supporting areas chosen with the approval of the 
adviser must be completed. Although the program in art history 
allows considerable latitude in the selection of such courses, they 
should be chosen with the goal of enhancing the student's under- 
standing of the cultural context within which works of art and 
architecture have been created. Recent practice suggests that sup- 
porting courses will most commonly be drawn from such fields as 
anthropology, classics, history, literature, music and dance his- 
tory, philosophy, psychology, and religious studies. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student 
must earn a high grade-point average and complete at least 4 semester 
hours of independent research. See the undergraduate adviser for 
details.

Study for individual students must be designed and periodically 
updated through mutual discussions between the students and their 
academic advisers. Students should note sequential prerequisites for 
courses 

REQUIREMENTS 

The basic major consists of a minimum of 44 hours distributed as 

follows: 

1. ASTR 121 and 122 (replacing 101 and 102), or 210; 

2 MATH 120, 130, 242; or 121, 131, 242; or 135, 245; 

3. PHYCS 106, 107, and 108; 

4. A minimum of 18 hours in 300-level astronomy and physics 
courses (excluding PHYCS 319), of which at least 10 hours must be 
in astronomy courses. 

Additional courses recommended for students majoring in as- 
tronomy, especially those intending to pursue graduate study in 
astronomy, include MATH 225, 280 and 285, and PHYCS 331 , 332, 333, 
361,365, 386, and 387. 

Departmental Distinction. A student majoring in astronomy may 
earn distinction by attaining a minimum grade-point average of 4.5 in 
300-level astronomy, mathematics, and physics courses. 

CHEMISTRY 

Chemistry Courses. 30 hours (including general chemistry). 
Supporting Course Work and/or Prerequisites. 11 (or 10) hours of 
calculus, and 10 or 12 hours of general physics. 

Students may pursue chemistry by following either (1) the profes- 
sional curriculum in chemistry (leading to the bachelor of science in 
chemistry) or (2) the chemistry major in the sciences and letters 
curriculum (leading to the bachelor of science in liberal arts and 
sciences) . The chemistry major in the sciences and letters curriculum 
(requirements described below) is used by some students planning 
chemistry careers, but it is more often chosen by students wishing to 
obtain chemistry backgrounds for use in related fields. 

In contrast, the professional curriculum in chemistry is a rigorous, 
specialized program suitable for those planning careers in chemistry. 
It meets standards prescribed by the American Chemical Society. The 
requirements are detailed on page 152. 

REQUIREMENTS 

Students must complete at least 30 hours in chemistry and biochem- 
istry, excluding CHEM 100,103,115,122, and 199. The 30 hours must 
include CHEM 340 or 342 and two other 300-level courses, at least one 
of which must be outside physical chemistry. Transfer credit in 
chemistry must be approved by an adviser in chemistry in order to be 
included in the 30 hours. Students must complete mathematics through 
MATH 242 or 245 and physics through PHYCS 102 or 108. 

Departmental Distinction. Students qualify for graduation with 
distinction by exhibiting superior performance in both course work 
and in senior thesis research. To be eligible, a student must have a 
minimum cumulative grade-point average of 4.0 and must complete 
a senior thesis course. 

Cooperative Education Program. Students accepted into theSchool

preparing for graduate study in one of the many fields of Classical, 
Medieval, or Renaissance scholarship. It is also excellent preparation 
for the advanced study of la w and medicine; it is increasingly admired 
in the business world. Within the general requirements of the major, 
the Department of the Classics of tors individual programs designed to 
meet the needs and interests of each student. Close interaction be- 
tween faculty and students, individual attention, tutorial instruction, 
opportunity for study abroad in Greece and Italy, and the unmatched

Undergraduate Programs 



COMPARATIVE LITERATURE 



Comparative Literature Courses. 15 hours. 

Literature Courses. 24 hours. 

Supporting Course Work. 9 hours (chosen in consultation with an 

adviser). 

A student who elects comparative literature as a major must complete 
48 semester hours in the courses indicated below, including at least 12 
hours in courses numbered 300 or above. Besides knowing English, 
the student must have sufficient linguistic skill in at least one foreign 
language to participate in 200- and 300- level literature courses offered 
by the various foreign language and literature departments. 

As soon as a student contemplates choosing comparative litera- 
ture as a major, he or she should consult the faculty adviser, who will 
assist the student in selecting appropriate courses that will be espe- 
cially helpful as preparation for the advanced comparative literature 
training beginning with the junior year. Courses in classical civiliza- 
tion and in literature (particularly courses dealing with works from 
several countries) are especially recommended at relatively early 
stages of study. An ample selection of such courses at the 1 00- and 200- 
levels exists in the various literature departments. 

REQUIREMENTS 

The distribution of course work allows for considerable flexibility. It 
must include: 

1 . At least 1 5 hours in comparative literature courses, including C LIT 
201 and 202. The remaining hours should be selected from different 
types of courses (e.g., C LIT 141, 142, 189, 190, 341, 351, 361, 371). 

2. At least 1 5 hours in one literature in the original language (ancient 
or modern, including Far Eastern and African), 12 of which are at 
the 200 level or above, studied in depth and in its historical 
development. (Normally this is the primary literature of the 
student's educational background.) 

3. At least 9 hours at the 200 level or above in a second literature in the 
original language. With the assistance of the adviser, these courses 
should be carefully chosen so as to correlate meaningfully with the 
student's primary literature. A student may center his or her 
interest on a cultural period such as medieval, Renaissance, neo- 
classical and enlightenment, or modern (nineteenth and twentieth 
centuries), or on genres, relations, or critical theory. 1 

4. At least 12 hours of credit in literature courses used to satisfy the 
three requirements above must be at the 300 level or approved for 
advanced hours in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 

5. At least 9 hours in any single national literature or several, includ- 
ing comparative literature; or in other humanistic fields, such as 
history, philosophy, speech, art, music, psychology, sociology, 
theatre, anthropology, and Asian studies. Because some of the 
courses in these subjects are more suitable than others to balance a 
student's individual major in comparative literature, the student 
must follow the guidelines set by his or her adviser. 

6. Western civilization: C LIT 141 and 142 (6 hours) or either HIST 110 
or 111 and 112 and HIST 112 or 113 (6-8 hours). These sequences 
may be used to satisfy the requirements, respectively, of (1) or (5) 
above. Beginning students in comparative literature are strongly 
urged to take the C LIT 141-142 sequence. 

Departmental Distinction. To be eligible for distinction, a student 
must have at least a 4.25 cumulative grade-point average and a 4.75 
grade-point average in departmental courses, complete a senior thesis 
(C LIT 293), and receive the approval of the departmental honors 
committee. The departmental honors committee will determine the 
level of distinction to be awarded.

whose interests do not coincide with one of the specific options are 
encouraged to consider developing their own programs through the 
Individual Plans of Study (IPS) major. Enrollment in the major in 
humanities requires election of one of the options. 

Each option of the major in humanities is supervised by faculty 
members whose own scholarship and educational interests have 
involved them in interdisciplinary teaching and research. An adviser 
for students is available in each option and is responsible for approv-
